Recipe Notes

This recipe will serve 2 -4.
I use one pot for cooking the meat and making the chili.
I recommend cutting the stewed tomatoes into smaller pieces prior to heating the chili.
Kidney beans can be substituted for pinto beans.
Raw onions, green onions, sour cream and grated cheese all make great toppings.
