    Remove meatballs from pot and add onions, green peppers and jalapenos. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until veggies are softened.

More About This Recipe
  • I like chili as much as the next red-blooded American, but I not how everything gets broken down into tiny pieces. That’s why I love this chili recipe so much. Instead of just mashing up ground beef, I like to make little meatballs first. They hold together better and each bite is almost like eating a cheeseburger! Of course, making little meatballs is a bit more work, but it’s worth it. Spoon the chili up in bowls with lots of cheddar cheese, a dollop of sour cream and diced scallions. For 45 minutes of work, it doesn’t get much better than this for a warming winter meal!
