This is a 2ND PLACE WINNER. I won second place in a chili cook-off as well as a 2 foot trophy for my chili recipe. I hope you enjoy :) For a special treat top with grated cheese, onion and a dollop of sour cream.

I made this for dinner tonight and it was very good! Next time I will either cut the stew meat up a bit smaller, or cook it a bit longer. Definitely a keeper! (Original Review from April 12, 2007) Update: Prepared per directions through step three. Added all ingredient to a crock pot, using a whole pot roast instead of stew meat. Added beans when I got home and a can of tomato paste. This cooked for about 10 hours on low and was perfect! Nice variation of this recipe!
