Best Ever Gluten-Free Chili---

Every one in my family loves chili, that being said chili is a fun dish to celebrate the championship game, a large group gathering, or to ward off the chill on a cold winter's day.

What do you do if the majority of the seasoning packets are packed with wheat?

We found a great gluten-free seasoning packet and combined it with our family recipe for chili, and the results are fabulous.

This recipe is super-easy and I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!

Let's make some chili!

    I’ve tried this chili and it’s very good! I may add bell peppers to my pot though.
