I want to share with you my chili recipe. This recipe has won awards at chili cook-offs that we have on St. Simons Island, Georgia. This recipe and slight variations have won some top honors at a number of local events over the past 10 or so years. I stole the basis of this recipe from my neighbor "Wally" and old coot from California, but don’t tell him. So, let’s start with the ingredients.
