Gregster’s Bear Chili

This is my famous Bear’s Chili Recipe that all my friends requested back in my younger drinking days. Every time there was a big game in the winter the club I frequented back then would give me the funds and request I made enough for 20-30 people to share.

Now I make it 2-3 times a years just for family and friends and is usually a Super Bowl guaranteed dish! My family just love it and we eat it with crackers or oyster crackers and a dollop of sour cream and a spinkling of shredded cheddar cheese.

I hope all my followers enjoy this recipe and please rate my recipe and leave me a comment!!!! Go Bears!!!
