Fantastic Chili. My husband said "better than BJ's Brewhouse chili!"

I have been to BJ's many times and one of my favorite things to get is the chili and a salad. I have tried this recipe and it is very, very close to the original. I will be using this recipe from now on in my kitchen. I highly recommend this recipe and the original dish.
