If you're like me, you don't mind eating chili all year long, but I know there are some of you who are longing for summer salads and gazpachos. We'll get there soon enough, but I wanted to make a big pot of chili the other night that still made us feel cozy (despite the 80 something degree weather).This chili is pretty traditional: it's packed with protein and spices and it's great with toppings like cheese, sour cream, tortilla chips, or whatever else sounds good to you. Plus, its only takes 30 minutes to make.See more frugal recipes!
