POKS Texas Style Chili

POKS Texas Style Chili

Texans love a good bowl of chili, with each home having a different twist to how it is prepared. However, there are just some “no-nos” when it comes to making Texas style chili, and one of those is adding beans to chili 🫢!

In some homes, bringing chili to a Texas party with beans in it, will have you banned from future parties, for sure. In our version, we used cubes of beef instead of ground beef, and generously seasoned with with our POKS Red Chili West African Seasoning. Cheers as you Discover FlavorFULL Goodness.
