Texas Chili

Few foods fit a season as well as chili fits winter. As the dead of winter looms large, foodies know full well nothing can warm the body up better than a bowl of chili.

Photographer Frankie Frankeny, who along with Leslie Jonath co-authored "Soup's On: Soul Satisfying Recipes from Your Favorite Cookbook Authors and Chefs," (Chronicle Books), knows full well the value of a hot bowl of chili on a cold winter's day. Frankeny's parents have enjoyed the following recipe for "Texas Chili Soup," which Frankeny shares in her cookbook, for years on some of east Texas' coldest days.
