Sometimes are taste buds need to be tickled with spice and this dish does the trick! We just celebrated our 40th annual Chili Cook Off in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico and the entries were magnificent. This event is held every February with a parade, great music, and a variety of expats visiting from across the globe. Next year I may enter this recipe with a bit more kick by adding just the right amount of jalapeno peppers. This recipe only serves 6 so if you want to double the amounts of all ingredients you could freeze some for a quick addition to any meal. 1/2 cup serving size: Net carb 3; Calories 387; Fat 24; Protein 33.
