This recipe makes a big batch of chile that freezes well. The bottled salsa gives instant flavour without a long simmering time.

Wow! This was soooo good! Perfect for a cold day. We love spicy foods. I used medium salsa. It was perfect for our tastes. Chili is a favorite here, and the extra spice made it all the better. We topped with sour cream and tex-mex cheese.
