Cold Weather and Cozy Spicy Flavor

Cold Weather and Cozy Spicy Flavor

Here at Backyard Rubs we are a Texas-inspired and Midwest-made BBQ rub and seasoning company.  We understand that when you claim something from Texas that has big implications.  We have been influenced by our midwest root -- anyone else like a good cinnamon chili (for example, Skyline -- if you know, you know!) This is not going to be a Texas chili recipe.  This might not even be a chili recipe at all.  

However, this is our take on chili, the way we like it.  That means no chunky tomatoes and no beans and this time no cinnamon either.  After all, this is cooking, which means the rules don’t apply. So feel free to alter this recipe and make your own, that’s what we did and we like it, you just might as well. 

Here is a hearty bowl of flavor that is sure to keep you full and warm on long winter nights.
