*This makes a TON of chili, you can eat some and save the rest in the freezer. **I use mild versions of everything (chili seasoning, salsa, and green chilies) because I am a wimp and I have little kids. If you want more kick you can adjust it to your tastes! ***Feel free to add or substitute any vegetables or beans you desire!
