Southwestern Three-Meat Chili Recipe

Southwestern Three-Meat Chili Recipe

When Mom came to live with me several years ago, I told her it was now my turn to cook. One goal was to enhance recipes of the great Southwest, so I experimented and test-tried several recipes. This is one of the successful attempts, and served with a fresh green salad, it has delighted many guests. —Bob Wyatt Kansas City, Missouri
