Dave's Chili

205 mins (prep 25, cooking 180)
20 ingredients
8-10 servings
We love to make chili together, and we usually play around with it all day, adding this and that, and it is never the same, but today's batch was exceptional so I thought I would put it here for future reference. The original recipe is supposedly from Conway Twitty that my husband obtained from an anesthesiologist he was working with at the time. Conway supposedly won a Texas chili cook-off with it. But this is our version of his great recipe that has evolved over the years. It's a little hot/spicy, but you can adjust the amount of seasonings if you want it milder. Feel free to play around with it. Hope you enjoy. Someday I'll post the original of Conway's chili recipe.
