With the cold snap in East Texas, this is the perfect time for a nice, hot bowl of chili.

If you’ve got a great recipe and all the ingredients, you may be able to easily knock it out in the comfort of your own home. If you’re craving a great bowl of chili, but don’t want the mess or the clean up,  you’ve got several options in the Tyler area.

There’s a lot of debate around chili. Some say it is better with beans, but most Texans will tell you that true chili is bean less and red in color.

They host an international competition annually in Terlingua Texas to decide who has the best chili recipe.

It’s a coveted award and if you do want to attempt it at home, here’s a winning recipe.
