Best Damn Chili Ever for Chili Cook-Off #SundaySupper

We have a Chili Cook-Off today for #SundaySupper. I really wanted to make a winning chili today for you, so I started off with a great name and then had to come up with a chili that was worthy!! I think I succeeded nicely. I really would like your votes for it to, so VOTE HERE!!!

Best Damn Chili Ever by Noshing With The Nolands I wanted this chili to have lots of deep layered smokey flavor, so I charred the peppers, added smokey paprika, dried smoked chipolte peppers, roasted tomatoes and chorizo, all to add that incredible taste. Never mind all of the other 15 ingredients!!

This is spicy but not blow your head off spicy, I can’t handle that. You can always adjust the heat with the amount of chipotle pepper you add.

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before
    but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

    Anyhow, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!


  1. […] When I flipped through this cookbook I could have made anyone of the delicious recipes that seemed to leap off the page at me. Recipes like Roasted Okra with olive oil, lemon and sea salt, or Caribbean-infused Coconut Hoppin’ John or Herb Grilled Bison with Fig Chutney (love bison) or Sweet Potato Gratin. Well, I did pick a Sweet Potato Corn Bread recipe!! One that my whole family adored and was perfect with Best Damn Chili Ever!! […]
