I have made this chili recipe for at least 14 years. I entered this recipe in a contest some years back and it won 2nd place! My kids actually cheer when they hear we're having chili for supper! Perfect for fall and winter meals or for taking to a chili supper at church. It has a wonderful flavor and texture--you can change the ingredients somewhat to suit your own taste but don't forget to add the 2 squares of baking chocolate. It heightens the flavor of the tomatoes.
