This has got to be delicious, and now that it has gotten chilly, there's nothing better than a chili to warm me up ;)
I just like to have my bread with chili, but trying to cut down on baked goods. I guess I'll try it with Joseph's Bakery pita bread for diabetics, popped in the microwave just to get it soft and warm. Oh, definitely trying your chili this weekend!
