In the Winter I like to eat warm dishes because it’s comforting.  Sometimes I made some changes such as removing the meat and replacing with green lentils instead, it is up to you to adapt the recipe as you wish or your taste.

I like Ricardo’s great recipes, and the classic chili is one of them.      The website is here.
