Renee W – Grandma Two Dog’s Chili Recipe

During  my school years we always had chili and cinnamon rolls for lunch at school!  It was sooo good!  This is the recipe my mom used when I was growing up, she would usually have monkey bread with the chili.  I like to garnish mine with cheese.  The recipe is named Grandma Two Dogs because when my first 2 boys were littlethey couldn’t say my moms last name. We gave her the nickname Grandma Two Dogs because she had dogs and their other grandparents did not.  The nickname stuck around and we still call her that today!
