This is not fast food nor is it diet food. This is George and Maud Swick's recipe; it's the 2001 World Champion, International Chili Society. I use this as a baseline and substitute liberally. She uses oil I try to use bacon fat or whatever is around the house. I usually add some beer, I mix and match different chili powders, and sometimes I feel like making it hotter; sometimes I make it less hot.
