For all the people beating down my door for my husband’s award-winning recipe since last week’s chili cook-off, this one’s for you.
It is a "chopping intensive" recipe, but if you don’t mind spending a little more time in the kitchen, this one seems to be one that all people do prefer to eat (and will actually fight over for the last bowl)!
Drum roll, please…
