This diabetic chili is a favorite. During the year, I'm known to drag my
family members to chili cook offs. I love the music, the vibe, and oh
the chili. It's great, you can't feel your mouth from the spice of
certain chili dishes and yet you have to vote at the end for your
favorite. Never been to a chili cook off? Invite family members
over and tell them to bring their best chili recipe. :) It will be a
family cook off tradition. You can start with this recipe....
