This is Texas style chili with beans. This is my own recipe and it comes from my website, Smoked 'n Grilled. I tweaked this until it's just the way I like it! If you want it mild, then leave out the cayenne, but leave the black pepper in, because black pepper is very healthy for you.

A good hearty chili; but be warned - even with cutting back it is HOT. So if you are a spice lover this is the chili for you. I did make 2 changes that I on't think changed the flavor but was done for ease of prep on my part. After frying the meat, dumped it all in the crock pot on high for 4 hours, the last hour removed the lid for it to thicken. I also left out the can of black beans as I didn't have one. This all worke out well and dinner was ready when DH got home. Served with Smoked Bacon & Onion Sweet Cornbread for an easy but complete dinner. Made for Spring PAC 2012
