anything goes chili

Recipe by
Lori Frazee

Quite frankly, this recipe is to be made with leftovers from your weekend BBQ, or in my case, the contest on Saturday!! BUT, any meat goes, use your immaginations. Hot dogs, no problem, chop 'em up, chicken wings, break 'em down and use them. My prference is Chicken, rib meat, pulled pork, and brisket.
