      I had to try this recipe mostly because the chef insisted not to add beans! Wow Di, it was fantastic!All the different flavors of the chile's really make this dish. Also not so high in carb's which we are watching. I wish I could give it more stars! It was truely wonderful. One suggestion though.....I think you should change the name to Chili Texas. :0)
