“This is a recipe I found in Cooking Light. Besides being an awesome tasting chili, I really like this recipe because it uses stew meat instead of ground beef. It was very chunky and not overly spicy, a great recipe. The only thing that I did differently was to completely cook up the beef at the beginning and then I just cooked it for 10 to 15 minutes until it was heated at the end instead of simmering it for 1 1/2 hours as directed. Very good chili!!”
