Meet the Cook: My entire family urged me to send in this recipe! I came up with it one day when I wasn't sure what to do with a can of black beans I had. I just threw a bunch of stuff together, and out came a new chili that's become our favorite. My husband always tells me that I'm the world's best cook. That's nice, since he's the best husband in the world! Our four children are ages 6, 4, 2 and 1. -Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon

Meet the Cook: The basis for this recipe was handed down to me by my aunt, who said she got it from a "grizzled Montana mountain man". I added some zesty ingredients to come up with the final version. Hot food is something that my husband's family isn't accustomed to. So I adjust the spices for them. In fact, with a few simple alterations to the "heat" index, I can serve this chili to anyone. Chad and I and our 2-year-old son live 12 miles from town in the country. -Lisa Humphreys, Wasilla, Alaska

Meet the Cook: Beginning when I was just 5 years old, I was my grandmother's constant helper in the kitchen. And, like her, I can't seem to follow a recipe without changing it! That's how this one came about when I got bored with plain chili. The first time I served it at a potluck, people passed around copies of the recipe. My husband and I have three grown children and three grandchildren. -Chloe Buckner, Edinburg, Pennsylvania
