Back when I use to grow my own fresh vegetables, I loved to make my own pasta sauce. I also liked to add sliced up pepperoni, kielbasa, or Italian Sausage to my spaghetti sauce and chili, sometimes all three like at deer camp. I also make one of my faves, "Bad Axe Bean Soup", a recipe using navy beans and ham. It is a popular Michigan Thumb/farming community recipe handed down for generations. Navy beans are a prominent Michigan crop. I use my mom's recipe, pretty basic, navy beans, water, ham/hambone, salt, pepper, and onion. Served with homemade bread and it's a full high-protein meal. Just curious, in your chili recipe, calling for burnt coffee -is that coffee grounds?
