This chili is delicious, low fat, quick, healthy, and doesn't require any weird health food store ingredients. I made this one day while feeling under the weather and have been making it ever since. This recipe is not very spicy, so feel free to add more heat if you so desire. This is my favorite chili recipe. It tastes great, hot or cold.
