There is so much meat in this chili, the vegetarian in me wants to push the bowl away. But the ravenous chili lover in me grabs the bowl and digs in!

Just a note - the different kinds of meat are not required, just make sure it all adds up to the same amount of the same meat. Its easy to substitute.

Also, we like a lot of heat in our food, so adjust peppers and seasonings to better handle your heat preference.

Thanks to my bestie for the recipe!
