Chili Con Carne

Everybody has their favorite way to cook chili con carne, and this is mine. I like to add a good amount of my Bomba! XXX paste to this iconic Southwestern dish, since it really enhances the sweetness of the tomatoes. Enjoy with tortilla chips, cheese, and sour cream, or even on a hot dog!
