Top Review by Grace Lynn

I used 1 lb. ground sirloin and 1 lb. ground pork loin, we like our chili thick. I increased all other ingredients to accomodate the extra meat. I didn't have Mexican style stewed tomatoes, so I used whole canned tomatoes and added a can of Mexican style diced tomatoes with green chilies (extra hot). Used navy beans instead and some Graber's vine ripend olives. I served it with Mirj's Hungarian Cucumber Salad with Sour Cream on the side. We actually topped the chili with some of the cucumbers and it's delicious! Thank you Kittencal Bass for a keeper!
