    Rita~'s Note:

    This is one of the dishes I made for a big crowd that will be partying with us on the Fourth of July. (You can cut the recipe in half or you can freeze for a latter day).I used venison but you can use lean beef. Venison is very lean. I use small cubed pieces of meat as well as ground. Gives it more texture. But its melt in your mouth cubes of meat. It really does melt in your mouth. All the different ingredients blend together to give you a nice spicy almost 5 alarm chili. I used Goya beans which are not to be rinsed. Check your cans most do need a rinse.The picture shown is one serving and topped with grated cheddard cheese, sour cream, and Salsa Verde Salsa Verde.

      I began using this recipe about 3 years ago. It is absolutely wonderful! Perfect amount of heat, very hearty too. I have made it and substituted ground turkey, turkey breast (cubed) and turkey sausage (trying to be healthy) and it is just as great. It makes enough for a party, with lots left over (and it is even better the next day). Thank you Rita!!!

      Wow! This is a delicious and wonderful recipe. I cut the recipe in half and used ground beef, cubed chuck roast and italian turkey sausage for the meat. Followed the rest of the recipe only used two cans of beans. My kids and grandkids stopped by and we had enough for all and everyone enjoyed it. Definately will make again. Thank you.

      Once again, this recipe is a cook off contest winner!!! A couple of friends and I entered a chili cookoff in Pensacola last weekend and took first place in the blind taste category. We didn't even design any presentation for the bowl of chili for the judges, just a bowl of chili!! Sixteen teams competed, one was the best, what a great recipe.
