chunky mixed up chili best
Chock full of chunks of meat, peppers and squash, this recipe rated sky high!

We call this dish Chunky Mixed-Up Chili because I combined ingredients associated with a couple of different cultures into a chunky, vibrant chili recipe. The resulting chili rated a 20 on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the top score (supposedly), by one of the taste testers and a solid 10 across the rest of the testers. And it was easy to taste why it rated so high.
