During my 25 years of marriage, I have made more pots of chili than I can count. I would never seem to make chili the same way twice. That was until I made it this way. After I served this to my husband, he said this is the one he wanted to eat again. I wrote down the recipe and now this is the only way we have it in our house. Except for our 7 year old who wants her chili without beans. We always eat ours with crackers and a side of crunchy baby carrots.
