This is a great way to have free time while hosting a party!! The prep time is all the work. And can be done the day before. You can serve it over Rice topped with cheese or roll it into a wrap, a side of sour cream, salsa, and sliced avocados. You will like this thick and spicy dish.

I tried this due to a challenge on the World Tour Event. I used ground turkey and made in a crockpot, otherwise followed the ingredients & instructions. I am sad to say this wasn't to my taste. I couldn't get past the sweetness, but I am from Texas and have a preconceived idea of what chili is. Thanks Rita for sharing your recipe.

I put a whole habanaro in then pulled it out before serving.

so many ingredients went into this-i think some of the flavors cancelled each other out. not at all spicy though it should have been, this is more of a stew than a chili.but everyone ate it, so that's a plus.
