Gluten Free Chili Con Carne

Chili Con Carne is one of my favourites. I ate it probably as much as once a week growing up and as I got older and began meeting friends for pub lunches, chili was always my number one choice. When you order chili in the UK (spelled as chilli) it is commonly served with rice and this is the way I prefer to prepare and eat it. In the States, chili is served as more of a soup or stew and often with crackers.
