Chilli - No Beans

With the cold weather upon us, nothing warms the soul like a warm bowl of chili to heat from the inside out. I had always thought that chili was somehow Mexican in origin, hence the previous name of this recipe, but research tells me that it is not terribly clear where it had its beginnings. From what I can tell, a Spanish nun came up with the recipe. She states that she got it from the Native American that she had been teaching through an out-of-body experience. Whatever its origins, chili is a delicious way to warm up on a cold winter's day. Works well in a crockpot too, a ready meal after a long cold day.
