Eagle's Chili

This recipe was given to me by a generous friend who passed away in April. Every Halloween he would make huge pots of this Chili and invite anyone and everyone to his house in celebration of Friendship. For our wedding, he passed the recipe to me. It's called Eagle's Chili. I have tweaked it a bit here to make a small pot of simple Chili for the everyday. It's hearty and thick and pairs Great with Cornbread or Garlic Bread. You can eat it plain or garnish it with a variety of crackers, sour cream, and/or cheese, nacho chips or even chives. There is an endless possibility of things you can do with a basic hearty chili.
