Chili Beans for a Chilly Fall Day

That fall chill has definitely settled in here in the Midwest and I for one am loving it.  So to celebrate not only this awesome weather but also a quiet Sunday with nothing on the calendar, I've got a pot of chili beans simmering away on the stove.  The kitchen (and most of the house) smell exactly as they should on a cool fall day... delectable and quite cozy.
