This chili recipe is simple to make and strong on flavor. It was adapted from a recipe found in Texas Home Cooking by Jamison and Jamison. I would highly reccomend using a homemade chili powder, but a store-bought one can be used, if needed. This is an excellent dish to make ahead of time and reheat before serving. The heat of the dish can be increased or decreased by adjusting the amount of chili powder used.
