This brought back memories of my mom feeding chili to half the neighborhood the night the school across from our house burnt down. She fed firefighters, neighbors, passers-by, anyone who showed up hungry. It was a sad loss to our community, but it was a great evening of fellowship.

Nice easy recipe for a big group. Really tasty although couldn't taste the chili at all (which didn't bother me because I don't like spicy food). Wouldn't feed more than 24 I wouldn't say.
