Great recipe! I added more chili powder, a little cayenne pepper and a dash or two of tabasco. I like my chili with a little "kick" :D I like this one better than *MY* chili recipe! Thanks!

Hi Laura, thanks for the input. With my mom being in the army she knows that it is great to have a home cooked meal. If the folks would like the recipe go ahead and give them a copy, that is what this is for :) happy cooking Tanya
