The chili my father has made since I was young. A great chili in my opinion.

Great bowl of chili. I also added lots of cumin (love it!). I made one change: The only canned "chili beans" I could find were pintos, and we prefer kidney beans, so I used those and added more of the chili powder, garlic and cumin, and added a can of diced tomatoes. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
