The perfect food for big families or students on a strict budget. A new twist on an old favourite. Packed with veggies and a couple special ingredients, this dish is tasty, filling and economical! Below are stove top directions, although chili can also be made in a slow cooker. Simply brown meat, add all ingredients and simmer all day!

"Very tasty and healthy! Was great in the crockpot. I will most definitely be making this again. "

The honey and cinnamon are a must!!! The honey cuts the acidity of the tomatoes/sauce, and the cinnamon adds a delicious, warm and smoky flavour to this dish. It also helps to temper the heat of the cayenne and jalapeno. Add as many vegetables as you like, this dish is fool-proof! This dish tastes better the longer you let it sit. [I posted this recipe.]
