Lone Star Steakhouse Chili
When the weather gets cold it’s time to fire up the stovetop. This chain makes a tasty chili that warms the bones on a nippy fall day. This clone recipe is easy-to-make, low-fat and delicious. And if it’s super brisk outside, you might want to add an additional tablespoon of diced jalapeno to aggressively stoke those internal flames.
