This recipe is based on http://www.recipezaar.com/Chili-Con-Carne-With-Beans-11149. I realized when I was trying to explain to folks what I had changed that it took longer than to just say what was in it. So, based on that excellent recipe, here's one that builds on it and I think is even better. Thanks to Marty Hugo for the original recipe! This recipe becomes much better on the second and third days. So make it over the weekend and enjoy it all week, or make it a few days before your event!
