This chili recipe is so good! It did not come from a written recipe so I don't have exact measurements.I just add what's needed until it tastes right.I usually make the pinto beans from a leftover spiral ham bone (saving the liquid from the bottom of the pan the ham was cooked in-liquid gold I call it-adding to the chili also)and have the beans for dinner one night and chili the next.there's only 3 in my family so it works out just right!

This isn't a recipe, it's a list of ingredients. If it doesn't taste good, is it the recipe's fault or my fault? Make the recipe and measure out the ingredients so we can approximate what you've done.

  3. Steam or boil the browned meat to remove the fat (please don't skip this step or your chili will be GREASY!).
