My husband loves getting a bowl of chili at our local Steak N Shake Restaurant, The chili has just enough beans, small pieces of meat and a good sauce. Not super spicy, but just enough for a good chili. Great with shredded cheese or onions on top, but he prefers oyster crackers in his. I made this recipe and my husband was amazed at how much it tasted just like the chili he gets at Steak N Shake. My kids used it for Chili Dogs and love it. Leftovers lasted about a day.
