“This came from what most likely is the strangest cookbook purchase I've ever made--attached to a carton of Marlborough cigarettes, sometime in the 1970's, I think it was. CHUCKWAGON COOKING FROM MARLBORO COUNTRY. I bought the carton of cigarettes (I'm a NON-SMOKER) just to get the recipes! When I prepare this chili for my family, we serve it with crackers, Fritos, green and black olives, slices of apples and cheese.”
