    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    It is the best I have had and make it often. I also give it as gifts (see Note). It is actually my daughter's base for chili and my spices. The two combined make a delicious pot. NOTE: For gift giving just package up the first 4 ingredients in one baggie. In another baggie place the last 8 ingredients. Give with the recipe on how to prepare it printed on a pretty tag. Also, if you are feeling really lazy, you could substitute about 3-4 cans of kidney beans/pinto beans or a mixture of both in place of the dry beans.

      This chili is meatier and quite a bit sweeter than we're used to, but we liked it. It's not very spicy, but we really like the subtle turmeric flavor. Because there wasn't much water left after boiling the beans, we kept the water and included it as there was so much flavor in it. If the beans weren't added to the meat mixture, the mixture would probably make great sloppy joes.
