It’s not spicy, but this chili is sure to warm you up during those cold winter evenings. “Since this recipe calls for precooked shrimp and canned goods, it is very quick to prepare,“ explains Elizabeth Hunt of Kirbyville, Texas.

"Hubby and I absolutely loved this recipe when I made it from one of ToH's cookbooks. It's especially good with orange pepper instead of green, and it makes a great meatless dish. Substitute vegetable broth for a true vegetarian dish. I'm bringing it (sans shrimp) to the potluck Christmas party for hubby's Army battalion."
