Camping Recipe: Julie’s 2 x 4 Chili

Having someone else cook for you makes the food taste 10 times better. But even when I cook my friend Julie’s famous 2 x 4 Chili recipe, it still tastes great. We had this while dry camping in a forest in norther Arizona when it was a wee bit chilly and it quickly warmed up our bones. This recipe is so easy, can be made ahead of time and frozen or dumped in a pan above a campfire. Thank you Julie for sharing. Delicious when served with cornbread.
