In my family, chili is not something that is popular - we are not a family of tailgaters, or football sundays (more baseball - go Yankees!), or potlucks. I never grew up with Mom making a pot of chili, so I'm not sure what possessed me to make this chili recipe a few years ago. We usually host an "open house" type party on Christmas Eve and I guess I thought this would be an easy dish to have out and people could serve themselves. I made it a few weeks earlier and it turned out to be a total hit and the rest is history :) It is commonly requested by my mom, my husband, and the rest of the (recipe-critical) family.

Note: you could really add whatever kind of beans (or amount) that you like; I usually use whatever I have in the house.
