Three-Step Chili Recipe

This recipe comes from my grandmother, who—although of Irish descent—was considered one of the best Mexican-food cooks in western Oklahoma when I was growing up. Want to know her serving secret? Before you fill a serving bowl with the chili, rub the inside with a cut clove of garlic.—Christine Perry, Denver, Colorado
