Chili Con Carne Recipe

Want a great Chili Con Carne recipe? This one features lots of meat. I serve it with a side of sliced avocado and sour cream, chopped green onions and grated cheddar.  It freezes really well so go ahead and make a double batch.

There are many variations of this chili recipe and listed below is just one of my personal favorites.
