Meet the Cook: When I first tasted this chili that originated with my brother, I couldn't wait to share it. It's the best I've ever had. My husband and our son, 2, like it, too. -Vicki Flowers, Knoxville, Tennessee

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 16, 2009

This chili recipe is fantastic. I think the addition of the chili beans in zesty sauce and the crumbled ground beef puts it over the top. You can't even identify the grnd beef it is just there. The stew meat is so moist and tender it melts in you mouth. Has a nice amount of 'heat'.
