Beef Chili

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by E. Brooks

This chili recipe is simple to make and strong on flavor. It was adapted from a recipe found in Texas Home Cooking by Jamison and Jamison. I would highly reccomend using a homemade chili powder, but a store-bought one can be used, if needed. This is an excellent dish to make ahead of time and reheat before serving. The heat of the dish can be increased or decreased by adjusting the amount of chili powder used.

Made this for supper tonight and my recently picky 6 yr old ate it without too much prompting- even though I doubled the amt of chili powder! Success. The only change I would make next time is to add some red pepper for color and a tsp of cumin for extra flavour.
