Three-Meat Chili Recipe

Three-Meat Chili Recipe

A combination of pork tenderloin, ground turkey and ground beef make this chili unique. Instead of pinto beans, you can use kidney beans, white beans or black beans; I use whatever is in my pantry and never seem to use the same kind twice in a row. It makes a big batch, but don’t worry if you have leftovers—the chili is even better the next day.
