This is our family's favorite fall/winter meal (and I don't normally like chili). This recipe is adapted from 'Jason's Chililicious' that I found on CZ's blog. In addition to the ingredients listed my secret ingredient is 1/2 a jar of Chili Sauce that I buy from Ten Thousand Villages (a local fair trade little shop ... check for one in your area, they're all over the place). I usually make 2 recipes and freeze half of it.
