Chili tips:

  • This chili is good served after making, but will develop more heat if it is made the day before and then heated up.
  • The meat will absorb the chili heat if allowed to sit over night.
  • We use whatever leftover roast meat we have after making a roast in the slow cooker.
  • Whatever roast we have is the ‘chuck’ roast we use.
  • You want to have the meat cooked tender so it falls apart to make this chili awesome.
  • Leftover chili is great on top of nachos, in stuffed peppers and on hotdogs.
  • Serve with your chuck roast chili with your favorite corn bread.
