This is the way my mother used to make it. The only change I made was to use fresh garlic as that is all I ever have in the house,and I used chicken broth as I had some in the frig that needed to be used. Served with freshly cooked pintos, rice and small crusty rolls. Thank you for a wonderful trip down memory lane and a short "visit" with my mom and grandma in the old kitchen. Thanks for posting, wish you would post your other chili and burrito recipes.
