Directions:
Wash chili beans, put in kettle in 6 c. water along with bay leaves and simmer until tender. Fry meat, onions and garlic until browned. Add to drained (I leave them undrained so it's saucier to serve over rice) beans along with remaining ingredients. Simmer 1 hour. Note: Soak beans overnight before cooking. Chili is good served the next day.

Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Karen Robison. I've done all kinds of damage to it depending on what ingredients I have on hand. I usually use pinto beans. Instead of soaking them overnight, which I always forget to do, I rinse them in the morning, cover them with water, boil them for 10 minutes and then let them sit covered for 1 hour. Then I proceed with the recipe. I use less meat and vary the type. It's good with a little chorizo thrown in if you have some. When I haven't had fresh chili peppers, I've left them out. If you want thicker chili, you can add some canned tomato soup.

Hawaiian chili: Serve over rice (yes, they really do this in Hawaii).
Hawaiian Scout Camp chili: Serve over rice and scoop with nacho-flavored tortilla chips.
Also good topped with cheese, onions, corn chips, etc.
