"This chili is so easy to make and is so good! Trust me. To make a double batch, double everything except the meat and onion. Use 1 can each of pinto and kidney beans, that is how I normally make it."

Very good, simple chili with just basic ingredients. Our family of five devoured it and needed more. I recommend doubling it as she suggests, but use all kidney beans... yum!
