This is the mildest, most user-friendly chili that I make. That's why I call it Potluck Chili. It's perfect for taking to any event because it will please even the most delicate eaters. It's not hot, spicy or too over powering. This simple chili has a lot of flavor and is pleasantly filling. I brought this to a carry-in at work and it went over very well, (like there was none to take home). Try it and you'll see why.
