I make a pretty good chili myself, but every so often I like to try other recipes. Except for being a little spicy for my taste, ( & I cut the chili powder down a bit ), it was still pretty darn good. Even though chopped meat is traditional, I think I'd go back to using ground beef...IMO, chopped beef is too lean & doesn't keep the flavor like 80/20 ground beef does. I love the idea of using chicken stock instead of plain water or tomato juice. I DID add a few of my own touches...I like chopped celery & mild green chilies in chili & that's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. All in all, this is a winner...THANKS for sharing!!!
