I remember dad making his chili at a church gathering over an open flame in a giant cast iron pot. Much more ingredients was add of course .I think the secret of the great taste is in the Tabasco sauce, I'm not double daring you I'm saying it's appropriate.Best served with jalapeno and bacon corn bread.
