One bowl and you're hooked! I've been known to assemble this dish the night before and stick the crock in the fridge overnight. It is great to pull out the crock before work in the morning and turn on the pot. This is a fabulous Chili! It also happens to be a much healthier option without sacrificing the flavors like some revamped recipes. We especially love the contrasting textures of the ground beef and cubed stew meat.

- 9One hour before you are ready to serve, add in Spice Mix Dump 2. Stir well to combine.

- 11SERVING SUGGESTIONS & LEFTOVERS: Serve with 2% sharp cheddar cheese, fresh diced onion, lite sour cream and crackers, if desired. Leftovers are great for chili pizza topped with 2% cheddar, baked and then topped with fresh scallion and lite sour cream. Also, Chili Joe sandwiches topped with cheddar. And the old standby- Frito's topped with chili, chopped onion, jalapenos, cheddar and sour cream.
