    Chilli was very yummy my husband and son ate with no complaints. The only thing I did was put Chipotle chili powder insead of the regular chili powder but only about half a tablespoon.

    Very delicious and simple to make. I actually put it in the crock pot and I used chuck steak (which has more fat content and makes it super tender). The salsa makes it very tasty!
