Good BASIC recipe. Chili lovers have their own idea of what makes a great chili. So just add or detract (celery)ingredients to make it your own. We have a large crock pot and we like it HOT, so I diced and sauteed 1 jalapeño, 1 habanero and 1 hot banana pepper from my garden and added it to the mix along with cumin, chili powder, roasted paprika, and a few dashes of Louisiana hot sauce:) As far as the beans go, you can add a combination of whatever beans you have on hand and you can't go wrong. I added, 2 cans of red kidney, 2 black, 2 pinto and 2 garbanzo. 2 jars home canned tomatoes and 1 lg can of chopped. Makes plenty of leftovers.
