      This was a fabulous recipe. I used two pounds of ground beef and two pounds of stewing beef. I also added a chopped pepper and some chopped celery to increase the veggie content without increasing the carbs too much. I didn't miss the tomatoes or beans found in regular chili! A really terrific low carb recipe!
