    SueVM's Note:

    A friend gave this recipe to me and she got it off the internet as it was very similar to her husband's chile who happens to be a fire man. Refrigerate over night in pot before eating. Not essential, but I think it tastes better, as all of the ingredients blend and meld together nicely.
