Thanks for sharing this! It was yummy! I needed something easy tonight (not cooking the turkey till tomorrow, so no leftovers on hand). I had a sample bottle of chili sauce from my Pampered Chef biz that I didn't know what to do with, as well as frozen corn from the CSA and dehydrated peppers from the backyard, so I was all set. I substituted a can of kidney beans for the meat, which worked out fine. DH and DD agree that we should have it again soon.

I never thought of using beans in place of the meat! I am so glad it worked!
