    IngridH's Note:

    This is a really beefy chili, and makes a great, hearty meal on a cool evening.It's not a terribly spicy version, but if you want to turn up the heat, add some cayenne along with the other spices. I often add more seasoning at the end of the simmering time to suit whomever I'm serving. I probably get more requests to make this than anything except my gumbo. This also freezes beautifully (if you have any left!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

      Although I usually make a vegetarian chili (& enough for freezing, then add meat, if wanted, when reheating) I decided to go the whole route with this one & included the ground beef! Served up enough for 2 of us & froze the rest in 2 packets! Very tasty, very satisfying & very easy to make ~ A very nice keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick A Chef event]
