Recipe by ratherbeswimmin

From BHG. A very well seasoned but not necessarily hot chili. Add cayenne or hot sauce or both if you want a hotter chili.

Great bean consistency even though I only had 3 of the 5 beans but I added plenty of extra gaaaaaahlic to make up for it. Was a little on the bland side so I added a packet of chili seasoning to final mix. Family raved about it.
