(NAPSA) - Even in this tough economic climate, it doesn't have to be a challenge to keep quality food on the table. This recipe uses delicious yet inexpensive ingredients-including wine!-to put a spin on a traditional dinnertime favorite.

Chili Con Chianti
Spice up your chili with a splash of Chianti. A hearty bowl can satisfy any appetite, and all you need is one pot. Saute flavorful veggies such as onions, bell peppers and garlic in olive oil until tender-crisp. Throw in your seasonings, along with cooked ground beef, tomatoes, kidney beans and Carlo Rossi Chianti. Simmer for 20 minutes and serve in a big bowl with a generous topping of shredded cheddar cheese.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 16-ounce can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup Carlo Rossi Chianti
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

In 4-quart saucepan over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil; add onions, bell peppers and garlic. Cook until vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.
