Cook It Yourself - HOTDXS Chili

In 1977 this meal was adopted as the official dish of Texas. I'm sure this is something that you will
enjoy year around. When the soldering iron cools down, fire up the stove and make a pot of chili.
In the year 2022 we will be celebrating the 45th anniversary of this dish. We hope by then you've
made this dish and liked it. Also if you have your own favorite chili recipe please share it with us.
