Lin's Chili

Linda LaPlante


DH always use to make us a great chili,but he has 'given up' on cooking,due to all my health issues. Now I have kinda taken over. I was trying for all healthy, but he only eats what looks like what he is used to. This was not one of my healthy recipes! But it turned out really tasty!
Note: I have used what was left in house. No other items were available ....I have made this recipe with ground turkey and it tastes just as good.
