When you have kids helping in the kitchen.... you come up with some AMAZING IDEAS!!!

My 4 year old Grandson Ashton is the creative force behind this recipe and he is so very proud of it and asked me to hurry and post it!

We made this for lunch today (10-24-2011) and it was very good! Ashton said he wants everyone to try his recipe!

Ashton wanted two L's in chili in the photo... lol
