Today we hosted a Workforce Development meeting for approximately 40 people. We were looking at what it is going to take to have a 'prepared' workforce in the next 3-10 years. Needless to say, education was the key topic. But how to motivate students, how to educate parents to the positive side of 2 year technical degrees, and how to implement career education into K-12 continued to surface as the main concerns.
Since this was a 12:00 noon meeting, we had to have food ready. (Feed them and they will come!) I had been given a recipe for CHILI that we decided to try but I didn't think it would be CHILI. The way that I've always made it is pretty much the way my Dad made it for years ---- with Lots of Garlic and Lots of Chili Powder.
This recipe did not have ANY garlic OR chili powder. But when it was made it was very probably the very best Chili I have ever had!

And that is it! I'm sure the way it is put together contributed to the taste and texture. If you are interested in more detailed instructions let me know and I'll send it your way.
