    rontaylor1998's Note:

    In Mexico, chili is made from vegetables, including various chili peppers, and seasonings. Chili con carne (with meat) has meat added, and chili beans have beans. We in the U.S. have generalized chili to mean almost anything with chili powder in it. I got this recipe 40 years ago from a Mexican lady that was almost my mother-in-law, and she was a great traditional cook. Learned by watching because my Spanish is a little lacking.

      I made this recipe last night and the flavor was really good. I did use the canned beef broth, and ran out so I use water to finish it off. Thanks for sharing, I will make these again.
