This was my first attempt to make a chili completely from scratch using all these seasonings. I had always used chili beans in sauce before and jazzed it up. I have to say, we loved the seasonings in this chili recipe and felt they were spot on (even with my additions to the recipe). I halved the recipe and modified it a bit based on what I had on hand. I used ground beef, fresh garlic, onions, tomato sauce only, a 15 oz. can each: of diced tomatoes & kidney beans > cuz I like 'em! Let it simmer away until thick. Another winner RBS, thanks!
This recipe is a staple in our house during football season. In fact, we love it so much, that I was going to post this exact Southern Living recipe! YUM!
