Source of recipe: I can't stand anything that takes forever to make. This is quick and easy and is great with a side of corn bread. My husband hates mushrooms but I love them. I wanted to figure out a way to trick him so I ground the mushrooms in my food processor before I sauteed them. It looks like ground turkey and he loves this chili. He still has no idea. Hee, hee, hee.
