Chili (Mary Jo Higgins)

This recipe was written inside a notecard and from years of use the notecard has torn in half at the fold and been taped back together. It has obviously been well used and loved. FYI, a #2 1/2 can is approximately 3 1/2 cups volume, or 27-29 ounces. The #2 can is 2 1/2 cups, or 20 oz.

Note that this recipe is vegetarian, but you could easily add ground beef to it. Enjoy!
