You will notice in the photo that I doubled the recipe. This is my new go to https://www.wikipedia.org/. Followed the recipe as directed and loved it. Just the right amount of spice…not too hot and not too tame. Lasted my family of 5 for 3 meals…

Cover and simmer until meat and vegetables are very tender and flavors have developed in the chili, about 90 minutes, stirring occasionally. As written I would rate as 4, however with the changes I made it was a 5. First, I never put beans in my chili, that is almost a sin.

I won my chili cook off at work with this starting recipe. I added venison, and Neeses Sausage, coco powder, cilantro, and just kept playing with it. And the sour cream sauce i added lime juice that made it excellent. I wonder if it was a typo and suppose to be teaspoons not tablespoons?

No water and used petite diced tomatoes. I added more chili powder and red pepper flakes to spice it up. The second time I made it I browned the meat and onion then put that and the rest of the ingredients in a crockpot to simmer. Next time I’d like to add bell peppers. I made a modified version – I used a recipe posted on allrecipes.com called “Darn Good chili” and this recipe in combination. I didn’t use the hot peppers called for in this recipe – but I did use crushed chili pepper flakes.

Drain and add the chickpeas and kidney beans, tip in the tomatoes, breaking them up with the back of a spoon, then pour in 1 tin’s worth of water. Add the minced beef, breaking any larger chunks. veritecatering.com Bring the liquid to a low boil. Then, reduce the heat (low to medium-low) to gently simmer the chili, uncovered, for minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ground beef to the pot.
