Sharon's 5-Bean Chile Con Carne

Submitted by: NJYINZER

Introduction

If you like LOTS of beans in your chile like I do, then this one is for you!! This makes a very large batch (about 8+ quarts) and freezes well. Serve it on it's own or over rice or even noodles (my husband's favorite). If you like LOTS of beans in your chile like I do, then this one is for you!!
