Looks really good, Doug! :)

Reminds me of Susie's Fall Low Carb Chili;

I'll be making a big batch of it week as it's going to cool way down around here and rain.
This dish is so good on cold, wet days.

When I serve it, I'll put some in a bowl, add some shredded cheddar and Frank's Hot Sauce,
add more then top with more shredded cheese and hot sauce.
Then, put in microwave for one minute to melt the cheese.

It's ooey, gooey chili goodness! ;D ;D ;D

What you do today is what matters!
