Now I know that this is a very polarizing topic around these parts, and everyone has strong feelings about what "chili" really is. (I, personally, think of ground beef and beans in a very thick tomato-esque sauce).

Sr. and I are thinking about making chili this weekend. I consider myself a pretty good cook, but for some reason the simple "homey" dishes make me nervous. I have a crockpot, this should be easy. But still, I kind of want a recipe to work with... (I know I can just google, but I trust you guys way more than the google machine...)
