I'm making this for the fourth time today in two months. I tripled the recipe for a small party and there were no leftovers - everyone loves it. This is now a staple in our house. It's hearty and robust for Dad, and not spicy and sweet for Mom. I don't add water since we like our chili thick. I always cook my meat seperately from my onions so I don't have to worry about under/over cooking them. Everything goes in the crockpot once the chili is assembled for at least three hours.
