Summer Chili Recipe

Summer Chili Recipe

One of my favorite summer activities is growing fruits and vegetables in my backyard with our children. Our children are growing up learning the importance of healthy living right from their backyard. We harvest our garden every Monday evening, and tonight we were overwhelmed with the amount of produce our garden provided us with. We used many of the ingredients from our garden to make my favorite homemade summer chili recipe.
