Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Recipe by: MIGHTYPURDUE22

"This is the chili recipe the gang eats at Purdue Boilermaker football games. I always prep and cook the chili the night before and then reheat the next day. This is a combination of many different tomato-based chili recipes. Good luck and enj\ oy."
