Chili Bowls!

Since the weather has started to turn a little colder I have been craving chili! I've never made chili before and I didn't want to spend a lot of time on it. I know people soak their beans and what not, but after working 8 hours I don't have the time or energy to deal with that. I wanted fast and easy. I was so glad when I found a recipe on allrecipes.com that was titled "Easy Homemade Chili". That was it for me, I had to try it.

I also used my edible bowl maker pan to cook some sweet homemade corn bread. Gotta have cornbread with chili right? I loved the bowls even though no one else in my family wanted their chili to touch their cornbread. Silly family.
