Heartwarming Chili

When the cold weather pays us a visit, I like throw on my Snuggie...umm...I mean blanket, curl on the couch, and eat something that warms me from the inside out.  Chili just so happens to be one of those warming comfort foods for the cooler months' weather.


  • 4 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 pounds of beef (or venison if you prefer)
