Recipe by Ackman

I developed this Chili recipe several years ago & I won 2nd place in a local chili contest. It's become a family & friend favorite...my brother-in-law is considered a "chili connoisseur" & he says it's the best he has ever had! One time, a friend's wife ate 5 bowls of it, that I KNOW of.....YIKES!!! Hope you enjoy it, too! BTW....I do NOT put in kidney beans or macaroni, but you do whatever you like. IMO that's a darn good way to ruin chili!!!
