This has been my family's favorite chili recipe for 3 years, since I found it in Marlboro's 50 Winning Chili Recipes Book. The ingredients are simple and I love that everything just gets dumped into one pot- doesn't get much easier than that, and it tastes fantastic with a cornbread muffin crumbled into it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
