Recipe by Cherio_Benario
This is from an old chili recipe I found, I changed some things to try to make it a bit healthier, as well as spice it up. I got rave reviews from my husband and his buddy when I made this for a Buckeye football day. Enjoy! Feel free to try different meats for different flavors.
