This chili recipe is from the 1989 tv show "Roseanne". It's a hearty kind of chili with a little bit of a bite.

  2. Add onions; cook and stirring until translucent (for 2 minutes).

  4. Stir in tomato sauce and taco sauce. Bring to a boil; then reduce the heat, and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.

Great chili! But I just have to ask! How did you get a recipe from the Roseanne tv show??? Inquiring minds want to know!

Hi Domestic Goddess, We loved your chili.  My husband loves taco sauce so I new he would love this.  I used one jar of mild taco sauce and one jar of medium sauce.  It had just enough heat for both of our tastes. Thanks!

This is a quick and delicious chili recipe. I've never tried taco sauce (I used mild) in chili before and I really liked it. Excellent flavor and very filling. I love leftovers and I'll have a lot with this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
