This recipe was given to me by my friend Macie. I'm not a chili purist so I don't judge a chili on ingredients. I judge it on taste and whether I'd dress a hot dog with it. :-) This, in my opinion, is the best chili I've ever tasted. It tastes great by itself with a little cheese and onion, and goes great with anything you'd put chili on. It is especially tasty over steamed rice. This is a mild chili. If you like it a little hotter, you know what to do. I hope you enjoy.
