All chili's are not created equal and this one packs a wallop of flavor. I'm not very adventurous in my chili cuisine. I normally go between turkey and texas chili depending on what's on sale. But this week they said the temps were going to dip into the 30's, so I decided to dip into some beef and black bean chili. What an ahmazing flavor...it had it all smoky, hot, creamy and the black beans are a hit. If your looking for an excellent chili rotation then this is a must try.
