Gr8 Do-Ahead Tip:
Prepare the chili by following the directions above. Once cooled, freeze in freezer bags or other freezable container. When ready to eat, thaw in the refrigerator and reheat on the stove or in the microwave at a medium-low temperature until hot.
Here’s Debbie with a Gr8 Tip:
My husband Phil, and daughter Anneliesa, were in the mood for a baked potato with the chili. Instead of the chili being served over rice or with cornbread, I split the baked potato, gave it a little “squeeze” and poured a heap of Scott’s World Class Chili on top….with all fixins! Man was that a Gr8 idea!
