Good Day for Chili...

This is our absolute favorite chili recipe!!! It is out of this world and very easy too! It came from a Southern Living magazine of mine a few years back. I can't believe I haven't blogged about this until now?! Anway, give it a try - you won't be sorry!!!

Chunky Beef Chili

4 pounds boneless chuck roast, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 (6-ounce) cans tomato paste
1 (32-ounce) container beef broth
2 (8-ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 teaspoons granulated garlic - we use fresh!!!
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
Cornbread sticks (optional)
Toppings: crushed tortilla chips, sour cream, shredded cheese, chopped onion

Brown meat, in batches, in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Remove meat, reserving drippings in Dutch oven. Add chili powder to Dutch oven; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste; cook 5 minutes.

Return beef to Dutch oven. Stir in beef broth and next 9 ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 hours or until beef is tender. Serve with cornbread sticks, if desired, and desired toppings.

We tend to eat this with just plain ol' crackers! Also, it can be a tad bit spicy at times, so we add sour cream to the bowls for the kids!!!
