    Lainey6605's Note:

    Zesty "south of the border" specialty. This is the recipe for chili my mother has always used. It's not too hot and not too mild. It's just right. I entered it into a chili cookoff once and it won first place.

      This hearty chili is my husband's favorite! Since I myself prefer balanced protein, I toss in about 1/4 c canned corn to my own serving for a less-meaty meal. I occasionally add about 1/4 teaspoon cumin for some additional flavor.

      We enjoyed this chili a lot. My family likes it spicy so I used 2 tablespoons. I used the flour in mine and the consistency was perfect for us.

      This was yummy! I didn't have condensed soup, so I used a can of tomato sauce. I also opted to follow step 5 and make my chili less thick. I used 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder and it was perfect for me, but I'm a bit of a wimp. If you like things more spicy, 2 tbsp would be the way to go. Thanks for posting Lainey6605!
