I love this chili! My friend found the recipe in the same calendar and had to try it, and then she recommended it to me. The first time I made it I couldn't find the ranch-style beans, so I just used a can of red beans and it turned out fine. Tonight I am making it again and using the ranch-style beans. It is still simmering, but I took a taste and it is good this way too. A little more spicy maybe. Be sure you use a big pot, this recipe makes a lot of chili. Thanks for posting, Barbarella, now I don't have to!
