Indian Style Chili

Pat Duran


This recipe was given to me by Donata my friend in New Mexico, who gave this recipe to me when I lived there in the 60's. It is a very spicy but tasty chili. I hope you like it as much as she does, me, not so much as I don't like spicy that much(don't tell her though). I tone it down quite a bit when I make it for me...but you may like the original -so here it is.
