Personal Notes:
I began working on my chili receipt around 1985. I finally wrote this final product in 2013. We make our soups in large batches and freeze in two serving containers making it more of a good time instead of a chore. Of coarse this receipt can be made in smaller batches, but for that I will let you do the math!
