This recipe is one of my husband Dwayne's favorite, especially during cooler weather. The topping is crunchy, and the chili has just enough spice to warm you up inside in even the coldest weather! I add a simple side salad to complete the meal.—Heather Thurmeier, Pense, Saskatchewan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 9, 2011

This is a family favorite. My husband asks for it on a regular basis. We like to add some frozen corn for even more color and flavor.
