The Kitchen Files / Snow Day Chili

Stone Textile_Kitchen Files_Chili

This week Austin had a snow day.  This was due to a five foot patch of ice and since I grew up in Chicago this was quite comical to me.  All of my meetings were canceled and the city basically shut down.  So, I embraced the cold weather and made some Chili.  If you like recipes in the easy category like me, this is for you.  It is really good.  My “Snow Day Chili” is pictured above on our new Stone Textile Sand Diamond Print Napkin Color–coming soon!  Recipe below…
