Carol's Famous Chili

Brad's mom, Carol, makes the most wonderful homemade chili.  It's a favorite around here!  So, when I was planning the menu for our Halloween Party this year, a big pot of chili sounded like a great idea.  After all, it's a delicious, cost-effective way to feed a crowd.  Plus, it went along perfectly with the "chilly" weather outside!

I gave most of the food at the party some sort of spooky name, and dinner was no exception.  We called this "Kidney Stew!"

Carol's secret ingredients in this recipe are grated turnip root and a little brown sugar.  I made 2 big stock pots of chili, and it was plenty to feed the crowd.   Serve it along with corn chips, shredded cheddar cheese and a little hot pepper sauce on the side. 

Bon Appetit!
