    I had some leftover barbecue so I decided to try out this cowboy chili recipe. It was very tasty, a nice change from traditional chili.

    This is fantastic and very easy. I like to add a can of corn to it to make it a little heartier.

    This was a wonderfully simple and easy recipe. One to definately make again. I have considered sauteeing the peppers and onions prior to adding the remaining ingredients.
