Chili Cheese Tots

"Fall is here😍🙌🏻 and in our home, that means it’s chili season! I’ve Teamed up with @TuttorossoTomatoes and @TheFeedfeed to create the BEST CHILI in the Whole wide world (with or without beans)! To make the most delicious chili, you need not only the most delicious ingredients but the most natural and healthy as well. Tuttorosso’s products aren’t like other “processed” food – they use sustainably produced, NON-GMO ingredients, and they’re packaged in Non-BPA lined cans. That’s a huge step in the right direction, right!? Who doesn’t appreciate food that is delicious AND better for you?"
