Texans love a good bowl of chili year ‘round. We especially love it in our family, and we are passing this recipe down from one generation to another like it’s gold. It came to me when I was a new bride. I didn’t know how to cook when I got married, but my mother-in-law, a wonderful southern cook, let me stand by her side while she patiently taught me. This was one of my first recipes from that wonderful lady.
