Halloween Chili!

Holiday CRUNCH seems to start earlier and earlier every year!  
I've been SWAMPED! 
Not complaining, grateful for the work, but hence--less blog time!
I haven't even had much time to enjoy the coming of my most beloved holiday, Halloween!  WAH!
As per tradition though....I never forget to post my Famous Chili Recipe--our family Halloween fav!
