Southwest Beef Chili Recipe Perfect for Cool Fall days

southwest beef chili

This time of year is all about comfort foods. Foods to make you feel good and warm you up. One of my faves this time of year is Chili. Yum! The spicier the better for me, however the kids like it more mild. There are so  many variations of Chili, you can have a different one each day. However that may be too much! So why not have it when you are needing a little warm up and hanging around the house with plenty of time for it to simmer.
