    mccu's Note:

    Great chili for the whole family including kids. Not too spicy and has the right amount of beans. Also "hides" a lot of veggies. Add more chili powder to make it more spicy. This is a big recipe, so great to make ahead and freeze for future meals

      This recipe is very good, and the directions made it very easy. I have 4 boys and it was a big hit with them, except that they thought it was a little too spicy. So, next time I will either add 1/2 the Chili Powder, or stir in some sour cream to their portion if I don't want to adjust the recipe. I left out the green peppers, because I knew they would reject the chili if they tasted them. I also peeled the zucchini. We enjoyed this recipe very much! I would definitely make it again. Thank you, mccu.
