Personal Notes:
This is a favorite way to make our friends happy: invite them over for the football game and make a big pot of this chili. You can also go back for seconds, because it is extremely low in fat.
I had to ask Melissa what "3 turns of the pan" means and it is about 3T for all the other novices! Kay
