A steamy bowl of chili is always a treat for me on a cold wintry day. We have had our share of downright frigid days for the past couple of weeks. Now I’m not complaining because we had a beautiful white Christmas that left roads clear and enough snow to build a snowman. In fact we got to enjoy the white stuff for about four days! I’m just not the type person that likes outdoorsy activities in the cold. It is so hard to stay warm. This beef and bean chili is perfect for cold days. So get in the kitchen and warm up with this great chili from The Best of Fine Cooking Magazine .
