My mom would cook up a pot of chili and let it simmer on the stove. She didn't write the recipe down and it took years of trial and error for me to come up with a similar recipe. Mom passed in 1975 which made it difficult to get the recipe. This makes a huge pot of chili, enough for a large family.
