Best All-American Chili

Recipe by JamesDeansGirl

This was in this Sunday's paper; I haven't tried it, but it sounds pretty easy to make. *I'm just guessing that prep time and cook time are the same thing here.*

Good basic chili recipe. I served this as a bowl of chili one night and then in chili dogs a few days later. Both were good. This is a very mild chili; if anything, it could use a little more heat. Note: I believe the ingredient listed as 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can DRIED tomatoes should be DICED tomatoes instead.
