A very saucy and rich chili bursting with flavor. This is an open some cans and dump quick recipe. Wonderful recipe for a cold long day. The sauce ratio in my chili recipe is very important because I like lots of rich tomato-y sauce on my cracker. I eat my chili one cracker at a time, making sure to coat the cracker with sauce and then place some beans on top. I like that crisp dry cracker crunch in every bite. And you can't get that with a sauce that's watery.
