Po' Man's Chili

Submitted by: AKASHAVAMPYRSSA

Introduction

Hubby and I created this recipe when we were so broke that we didn't even have measuring cups. We measured the water with a baby bottle. The twins were babies and only dank formula. Being the new parents we were, we didn't have much in the way of good food. We were hungry so we hit the fridge and the cupboards and scoured the kitchen for ingredients. Thus the Po' Mans Chili was born. To this day, we still use a baby bottle and eyeball the measurements for the rest. Everything in this recipe is to taste. And taste it does! YUMMMM!!!
