Reviews for Calico Chili
"Fantastic recipe that I make at the beginning of every Fall season. Even though it does contain chili powder, to me it is more like a soup or stew. The zucchini really adds great flavor and it does freeze well. You could add a side of French bread, but the stew itself is very filling."
