Personal Notes:
During football season, I make a pot of chili every Sunday, it's usually gone by lunch time! I even won a Super Bowl Chili contest with this recipe!

Use this recipe as a guideline and mix it up, try different meats (ground pork, diced tritip), mix up the beans by using 2 or 3 different kinds and different liquids (bourbon, beer). Also, try experimenting with different chili powders.
