    Chef #280553's Note:

    This is my variation on the delicious chili my grandfather used to make. It was the only thing he could cook (besides hot dogs), but he certainly did it right. Make sure you have a large pot to cook it in, 'cause it makes enough to have some now and freeze some for later.

      This is by far the easiest and best Chili I've ever made. It's got just the right amount of spice without making it unbearably hot. Wonderful flavor, my whole family loved it. We lost this recipe once and just had to find it again.
