i'm with expatty: ya gotta have the onions and sour cream!

i also like to use cubed lamb (not ground) in my chilli. it gives it a more meaty flavor, imo.

larry, since you're a vegetarian, i guess you don't need meat suggestions. but, how about adding a diced fennel bulb to substitute for some or all of the onion, or fennel stalks for some/all of the celery?

i love fennel. it's another one of those background flavor dealios.

I love fennel, too.........it's fantastic for dietary upsets and freshens the "breath".......it's great to grow in the garden but do give it some room as it loves to spread out but you'll be glad that you did.....also the beautiful black swallowtail butterflies (if they are in your areas.......I'm zone 9) will lay their eggs on it as well.......back to food it goes so well with many foods esp. fish...........

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
