This is a beautiful and elegant chili made with black lentils known as the caviar of lentil's. I'm a southern girl so I had to add some Virginia Country Ham for that down home taste. The addition of champagne and duck makes this a real fine dining experience. The festive colors of this chili are perfect for holiday season. Enjoy! Cooking with Passion, sw:)
