Calling all Chili recipes

I want to make chili now that it is getting cold. I need a really good recipe though. I can cook so difficulty rating is not an issue. I am looking for something fairly traditional that is spicey.

I would love to see your recipes, if you don't mind sharing!! TIA!

I've decided to keep it short for a while. I'm having a lot more fun with it!!
I found this off the web and have used it year after year. Of course you can substitute add/subtract anything. I add a little minced garlic to mine. This recipe serves 10.

INGREDIENTS:

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 (46 fluid ounce) can tomato juice
1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 cup chili powder

DIRECTIONS:

Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and crumble.
In a large pot over high heat combine the ground beef, tomato juice, tomato sauce, kidney beans, pinto beans, onions, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, sugar, oregano, ground black pepper, salt, cumin and chili powder. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 1/2 hours. (Note: If using a slow cooker, set on low, add ingredients, and cook for 8 to 10 hours.)
Really good, different! Don't be weirded out by the ingredients. I was at first but decided to make this exactly as the recipe calls and it really is delicious. The family loved it.
