I also found this from Kraft Food & Family and have made it twice already. It is wonderful! Very easy to make and is healthier than canned chili. I only used 1 pound beef and cooked it with the onions to make sure they were softened. Also I used mild Pace picante sauce and added about a 1/2 teaspoon cumin. It is very good and I will be making it many more times! Thanks for posting!
