To Bean or Not To Bean

Chili Recipe

 I admit it, I have to put beans in my chili.  I can’t even pretend to comprehend not having beans in chili.  But, I also have to admit, that I am not a hot spicy type of chili gal either.    I found this recipe and had to try it.  Well, it was different with the allspice, but I would make it again.  The original recipe called for 1 Tsp. onion powder, but I substitued some real onions. (Love raw onions) And only used 2 TBS of Chili Powder.  Next time I make it, I’m going to do it stove top, don’t know why that wouldn’t work, do you?
