When cold weather hits I get hungry for homemade Chili Soup! I only buy Chili if it’s from Wendy’s, but I prefer my own. It’s easy to make and makes the whole house smell delicious. The ‘secret’ ingredient in mine is the small amount of ground cloves. It just gives it the ‘lift’ that Chili needs. Pair the chili with some cornbread and you have a meal fit for a king!
