Cabin Chili

"Every year, my group of friends takes a cabin trip to the mountains of North Carolina in winter for a weekend. We always prep easier foods to make for the whole weekend so we can relax and enjoy each others' company. This chili recipe is one we started doing over 5 years ago and has now become a staple to our trip!"
