Served with hot homemade bread, this makes a delicious meal on a cold day. If you prefer dishes that are mild or if you don't have green chilies on hand, this soup is also good without them.—Jane Seeling, Keene, New Hampshire

"Very Good Chili! I didn't have the green chiles or stewed tomatoes, so I substituted 2 cans of Rotel and 2 large cans of crushed tomatoes....very tasty!"
