Lenny’s Homemade Chili

Being a regular reader, you know that I don’t usually post recipes that match up with “current” events.  Well, that may change, if I can get my cooking act together!  HA!  In the meantime, let’s grub down on this recipe for homemade chili.

It has been one of those days.  I have been wasting the afternoon, looking through food blogs, peeking at Tastespotting, and what have I found?  Great Super Bowl ideas.  So, I thought I should share some of our favorites, as well as some favorites I have just discovered.

We, okay, Lenny made this hearty chili last week.  It is so good, that I wish I had a bowl of it now, instead of the diced up pears I am eating.  This chili recipe is full of meat;  two kinds to be exact, as well as three kinds of beans.  All that is left to make this recipe complete is your favorite chili toppings, icy cold beers and some killer margaritas.  Guarantee if you make this for your Super Bowl party this weekend, you will be the star chili maker.  It is really rock’n (did I just say that).

** Update on September 24, 2014.  We have updated this recipe, still the same great flavors, but we have made a slow cooker version.  And let us just say this, it rocks!  The meat is so tender, the sauce is so saucy, and it is mouth-watering flavorful.  Wait until you try it out!
