Top Review by Miss Annie

This is a good chili. We like it because it is easy to make, lower in fat, and tastes very good. Lyndon Johnson loved the greasy kind of chili, but Mrs Johnson reduced the fat in this recipe after his heart attack. This is recipe is probably as healthy as chili gets. Thanks for posting this one.
