Mexican Goop is what my honey's family calls this chili. Don't be looking for traditional Texas chili in this recipe! It's been taken on camping cookouts, hunting trips, and local chili cook-offs. It's really versatile since it's good with Fritoes or Doritoes as chili pie, good over hot dogs and can be spiced up with the addition of Tabasco as desired. Try it over rice or pasta too! Freezes really well for quick meals.
