The kids love this! A friend came over right after dinner and I offered him a bowl of chili. He said no thanks, he wasn't really hungry... we had some corn chips & dip out... he started scooping up the chili with the chips and raving about it... he put a big dent in the chili for someone that wasn't really hungry!! hehehe
