If you are looking for a bigger meal for a football watching party, or a brisk winter day meal, Barnard Clark’s Braised Chili recipe is a perfect choice. Combining beef and sausage in the chili, the meal is quite hearty. While this recipe recommends cooking for at least a hour, remember chili takes time to meld all the flavors. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes.
