Good every time

"I don't follow recipes religiously, but rather I use them as guidelines and then let my tastebuds tell me what a particular dish needs. The "recipe" I use for chili is the general set of ingredients I use, but every batch is teuly a little different from the last, depending on what we have on hand. Regardless, it is always delicious and a fan favorite."
