Rocky Ford Chili Recipe

When my brother and sister were in grade school in little Rocky Ford, Colorado, this comforting chili dish was served in the school cafeteria. My siblings described it to my mother so she could duplicate it at home. We all enjoy preparing it for our own families now.—Karen Golden, Phoenix, Arizona

"I would like to say this isn't recipe for Rocky Ford R2 chili chip. Where ever this person got the recipe from wasn't even close. They need to change the name."

"I did not make this recipe but it is very like my version of taco salad. I wish those who rated it had said why so low. It sounds pretty good to me."
