Recipe by ElizabethKnicely

Salsa verde brings the flavor of the southwest to this chili recipe. You'll find the salsa and masa harina - used to thicken the chili - in the Latin foods section of the supermarket. Mexican beer is a natural to use in and drink with this chili. Green onions, queso fresco, and sour cream are good condiment choices. GOOD TO KNOW: This hearty, flavor-filled chili is rich in protein and fiber. Top with fat-free sour cream and spare yourself 50 calories from fat.
