Part of this recipe is devoted to my Grandpa Biegacki who loved making chili but would never share his recipe. The only way you knew some of the things he put in it was to look in the kitchen garbage. Seriously, this is the truth. That is how my Mom and I found out he put in V8 juice cause he would get up at 3 am to start making his secret chili recipes. Some of the recipe is my own flair. Hope this keeps you warm on a winter's night.
