Almost Homemade Chili

I made this for my "adopted" 92 year old senior. She loved it so much, she bought the ingredients and asked me to make her a batch so she can keep it in her freezer. It's a recipe I created from viewing other "chili" recipes and taking ingredients and putting my own twist on it. I'm not a great chili lover, but this is one I can enjoy and hope others try it and tell me what you think
