Chili is a staple in this house. I’ve made it on the stove, in the slow cooker and in the pressure cooker. When I make chili on my stove top, I like to use my Lodge 5 Quart Dutch Oven, as, well, all things taste better in cast iron.
If you want a thicker chili, just simmer until you achieve the desired consistency.
My husband loves his chili over rice and I prefer it in a bowl with a scoop of sour cream. However, I started using Greek Yogurt in place of sour cream.
