I loved this Chili. Very healthy and packed full of Flavor. I added a can of pinto beans w/jalapeno. We used tabasco sauce and ground cayenne pepper.We also used ground turkey. It's hard going from ground beef to ground turkey but this made it a winner. And definitely converted us. We love Ground Turkey!!!!
