My Favorite Chili Con Carne

I have been making this recipe for so many years (36 plus) that I do not remember where it originated. I just made it (in multiple) for a Super Bowl party and since there was a request for the recipe, thought I would post it for future reference. We like to add cheese on top when we eat it. I hope others of you will enjoy it also.

We thought this chili was very good. I did not have the green pepper and next time will use that and 2 teaspoons of chili powder instead of one.
