Awesome and great tasting chili. This makes a lot of chili so freeze your unused portions for future meals.

I love chili and have tried many many recipes. This is a true keeper! I've never added celery or bell pepper to mine before, but they really added alot to the whole taste. Because it's towards the end of the tour - I did garnish with jalapeno, a 4-cheese Mexican blend (monterey jack, cheddar, asadero, and queso quesadilla), and a little cilantro. LOL. Thanks SueVM for a really nice treat. I halved the recipe, had a bowl and have frozen the rest to have later. Made for ZWT5 2009 Family Picks.
