Chili con Carne

FYI, I only took a few swigs of the Diet Coke but it goes so well with chili!

Chili is such a diverse meal. In other words, there are so many different ways you can make it. Sometimes when I make chili I add a jar of salsa to ground beef, beans and chili powder and it turns out delicious! Other times I add corn, etc. You get the idea. This recipe worked out really well using extra seasoned taco meat left in the pan that my son had for lunch, red beans and fresh cilantro from my garden. It turned out delicious!
