It’s snowing… again here in Iowa tonight and that means even more cold and winter weather is on its way. Much like most of the country, we’ve had the winter that won’t end here, and that has meant lots of time snuggled up indoors with friends and family enjoying comfort foods and each other’s company. Hot soup, stew and chili is often on the menu and if you’re also looking for a great new chili recipe, here’s a tasty one from one of our contributors!
