This is a chili recipe that my mom has made for years. She's passed this recipe on to me and now I make it a couple times a year when the weather gets cold. This chili is very good on the day you make it but EXCELLENT the day after when the flavors have had some time to meld. Its fantastic with some shredded cheddar cheese and Frito Scoops. Its also perfect for freezing and eating later for a quick and tasty meal.
