Contest-Winning Garden Harvest Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: I started making my chili back when we lived near a huge farmers' market that sold all sorts of vegetables. Be as creative as you like with ingredients. My husband loves chili, and this is a nice change from the traditional type. I've always enjoyed cooking - I grew up in a family with five girls. These days, I can count on our own youngsters (they're 4 and 2) to help me out! -Judy Sloter, Charles City, Iowa

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2014

"Very easy to put together and tasted great. Will definitely make again. I haven't gotten my husband fully on board with vegetarian meals so he threw a little hot dog in his serving and raved about how good it was."

Reviewed Nov. 19, 2011
