      Terrific Chili! One of the recipes made and enjoyed at our house during the Olympics. Have no idea if it's Texas style or not - but it's an absolute winner here in Saskatchewan! Count me in as another that loves beans in her chile - and tomatoes! Adding this CountryLady recipe to our Family Favorites Cookbook. It's that good!
