South Asian Game day Chili
Gameday chili is a great dish to enjoy your favorite game with some hot and spicy beans and beef. Kevil malone made gameday chili which was good enough but not spicy enough. This gameday chili with Thai chili pepper in my own South Asian style will surely hit you hard with the spiciness and juices. Let's get started!!
