Miss Kitty's Chili Con Carne

This was Mimi's (my mom's) chili recipe, which I grew up on. I've made some changes over the years, and this is how it ended up! It's not real thick, but it's full of chunky goodness. You can always use less liquid if desired, but we like it this way. I sprinkle grated jalapeno jack cheese on top and we have it with cornbread. We've also had this over prepared sea-shell pasta or elbow macaroni.
