I love my go-to chili recipe, but when I saw this one at allrecipes I was intrigued by the salsa in it. Honestly, you really can't taste the salsa all that much, but it turned out to be a really good chili that my whole family enjoyed. I think I still prefer my regular chili recipe, but this one was good too. Oh and this makes a lot - we had it 2 days in a row, so you could always freeze half to have another day.

* I served it with hot dogs, shredded cheese, and corn bread. It was a yummy fall dinner.
