Recipe by JoyfulCook

What a wonderful combination of flavours ! - the beans with the beef and chili makes it a real comfort food,serve either in a bowl with crackers, with rice, or salads as a main meal. Great served over a split baked potato.

This is so close to the way I always make my chili, I had to give it 5 stars. I used the larger amount of meat and after tasting it, added another 2 tablepoons of tomato paste. I served it over rice with guacomole, grated cheese and sour cream on the table. Thanks for a comfort meal enjoyed by all Joy.
