Reviews for Contest-Winning Garden Harvest Chili
"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."
"My vegetarian daughters love this, and so do meat-lovers like my son and I! It's hearty and yummy-I plan to make it for Thanksgiving Eve to enjoy with the family!"
