"I was collecting recipes for some of my favorite childhood meals from my mom when I found directions for a wonderful basic chili. My husband and I enjoy lots of vegetables and cooking with turkey, so we just modified the recipe according to our tastes. We also like a lot of spice, so we added chili powder. Other veggies may be substituted--cabbage and mushrooms are both very good." --CL Reader
