Easy, delicious chili. The cooking time can be stretched to a couple hours or put in the crockpot. Serve with shredded cheese and corn bread. Perfect for chilly fall evenings!

Very easy to make and we all loved it. I had 500gms ground beef so just added one can of tomato sauce, and as we dont like too much chili sesoning I only added 1 tablespoon of chili powder, and that was enough for us. Thanks for sharing.

The instructions don't mention when to add the chilli, so I give only 4 stars. I added it together with the tomato sauce and as of now the dish isn't ready yet, so will see what comes out of it.
