One of my good friends and neighbours is my regular walking buddy. She also happens to be a dietitian and an awesome cook! So of course a lot of our conversations revolve around food and cooking. My friends was telling me that she had to cook up a huge batch of chili for a charity cook-off at her workplace next week. I asked what kind of chili she usually made and since she lived in Texas for a while her go-to recipe is a smoky southern-style chili.
