Recipe by dawnie2u

After an evening of Cajun-Style BBQ Shrimp and Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, I felt like I needed to unclog my arteries a bit and came up with this delicious recipe for chili. I know the ingredients sound like an odd combination, but it is delicious and healthy for you. You can make this big batch and freeze some for later.

This was wonderful. My DH who DOES NIT LIKE BEANS loved it so much he took leftovers to work this morning. The only thing I omitted was the cilantro. Just because I didn't have any. Great job.
