  • I pinned this recipe quite awhile ago (apparently 35 weeks ago, according to Pinterest), and I finally got around to making it this week. My 13 month old daughter and I LOVE it (my husband refuses to eat anything without meat, but he did try it and admitted it was good). We’ve been eating it all week for lunch and dinner. Just for fun, I added a cup of pumpkin puree I had in the fridge that I needed to use up, and it is yummy. Exactly what you want from a chili in October. Great recipe! Thanks!

  • Thank you for the recipe… I am going to try it this week. What size can of crushed tomatoes do you use? Small or 32 oz?
    Thank you again!
