I Call It Chili

In my world, chili is whatever you want it to be - no rules, no arguments. I've had many people question whether or not this is "real chili" when they see it, but once they taste it they're just too busy eating to worry about it. This is a good basic recipe that can be easily modified to suit your taste. This is delicious as leftovers, but will be thicker the next day as the macaroni will absorb much of the liquid. It is VERY good this way, or you can add water when reheating.
