I have had this recipe for so long...supposedly it was Chili's chili recipe - I certainly don't know that for sure. I do know that it's good chili. It's not too spicy - you can up the amount of cayenne if you like. In Texas, real chili does not have beans! Serve over cornbread, with cheese on top.

Excellent flavor, similar to mild enchilada sauce. Very easy to make. I added olives and fresh tomatoes, and omitted the tomato soup and cayenne. We ate it with cornbread as Loren Lou suggested. My family LOVED it!
