Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

This particular recipe has evolved over the years. It was given to me by a friend who grew up in Pueblo, CO. It started out green then I added tomatoes, and beans to it and it was still "sorta" green, hence the name. Then a few years ago, a cyber friend entered in a Chili cook-off and won first place!
