Deen Bros. Chili
Chicken Legs is back in the kitchen! We always try and pick easy recipes for him to try since he is still a beginner in the kitchen. We quickly decided on the All Day Beef Chili from our new Deen Bros Take It Easy cookbook since all the recipes are easy and very tasty. The original recipe served 6-8 people, so we cut it down and had enough for dinner and lunch the next day. Chicken Legs browned the meat and mixed it all together the night before. The mixture was very, very thick. We were worried that it was going to be too thick, but after cooking all day in the crock-pot it was perfect! The flavor was great - good chili flavor and wasn't too hot. We followed the Deen Bros. recommendation for the chili to be served over corn chips and topped with cheese and sour cream. We both agreed that this was the best chili we've made. It is now our "go to" recipe. Another winner from those Deen boys.
