Hope's Classic Chili

This is seriously one of the best basic chili recipes out there! I got this from a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook that I have been making for years and added a few ingredients of my own! Everyone who tries this chili that I make rave about it and usually go back for seconds. This Chili wouldn't be complete without a side of cornbread (I use Jiffy). You cannot go wrong with classic chili especially on a cold wintery night!
