    Ever? Really? Hmmm. Perhaps I’ll try making it with Quorn. Or maybe I could make my own roo mince? I shall let you know!

      I *have* actually made a similar recipe with a quorn-like product but I have to tell you it wasn’t the same.. I do a great veggie chili too though!

    Voted! Going to add this recipe on the “must cook” list.

    My favorite chili ever had ground turkey, white beans and butternut squash chunks with all the usual suspects for seasonings. Chili recipes and what is best is probably a topic that could start a war!!

    It’s definitely almost hearty chili season, thanks for this great recipe! Bummed I missed out on the contest though.

    I like the idea of ground beef and stewing meat!

    Sounds amazing. I am not a fan of chilli but this recipe may change that.

    This chili looks delicious. To make it skinny, I’d brown the beef without oil in a nonstick pan.

    Mmmmm, I’ve done something like this before using ground beef & loved it, so am definatly giving this one a go. thanks for sharing.

    That made the ‘ol tummy rumble. Mostly it was the guac topping. Mmm….guacamole on chili…

    This. Looks. Delicious!

    Yum! I’m finally catching up on my RSS reading, and I’m glad I am. This chili looks amazing. Perfect for the cold, rainy weather we’ve had this week!

    • Mardi@eatlivetravelwrite October 7, 2010 at 20:07 #

      It’s the best dish for that type of weather – I always try to have some on hand in the freezer…
