There is a certain big game coming up that I can’t mention by name because it’s trademarked, but you all know which game it is. Each year we make it a big family event with lots of yummy snacks, treats, and, of course, some chili.
This Apple Butter Chili is the perfect chili for a big get-together. It’s a mild chili that has plenty of flavor. The apple butter adds a nice earthiness without making the chili too sweet. If you like your chili on the spicier side, though, feel free to add a little (or a lot) more chili powder. Either way you can’t go wrong with this delicious chili!
