Cowboy Chili

I’m sure Andy and Woody would have loved this Chili on the Triple R Ranch! This easy recipe is one of my husbands favorites. Full of heat and spice, hearty portion of beef and beans, and always paired with homemade cornbread. I prefer to have some crunch and usually pair it with tortilla chips. Either way… it’s one for your recipe box!
