Put your packaged chili seasoning away, because today you're going to create some delicious homemade chili using fresh ingredients.  If you haven't had homemade chili in quite some time you are in for a real treat.

Would like like most about chili is that you can make enough for leftovers.  The chili will always taste better the second day and then after that I usually freeze what's left over for a future meal.  

My son even likes to spread this homemade chili over grilled hotdogs and then top with his favorites....cheese, relish, tomatos, and onions.

This recipe calls for fresh ingredients for one simple reason. You'll always beat the taste of packaged seasoning mixes by using fresh herbs, spices and vegetables.
