    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    The name says it all...this has always been my family's favorite, even though there are a lot of shortcuts. It is simple to make, tasty and fast. What else can you ask for? To serve, I ladle it into a large bowl and garnish it with lots of shredded cheddar cheese and jalapenos. I insert tortilla chips all around the edge of the bowl for either scooping up some of the chili with (nacho-style) or eating along with the chili itself.

      Nice simple chili. This was easy to put together and tasted great while watching football. Thanks Jackie for a nice keeper. Made for What's on the Menu Tag.

      I made the following changes to the recipe: used pinto beans instead of kidneys, used tomatoes with green chiles instead of jalapenos, and 1 pkg. of regular chili seasoning mix and 1/2 a pkg. of hot chili was plenty hot enough for us. I also used only1 lb. of ground beef and added 1 carrot chopped in small pieces, 1 medium onion chopped and 1 zucchini chopped into a small dice and sautéed them before adding them to the chili. It made a fabulous, thick chili that's great on a fall or winter day. Made for Football Pool 2013.

      I only made half a recipe to try it out before taking it to a large party. It was the first one I tried and it's a keeper. It was pretty hot. I'll have to tone it down quite a bit when I make the large batch, since there will be kids and elderly ones at party. I tried a bowl of it with and without cheese, both ways were good. I like rice with chili and cheese on top and I think this is will be great for that too. Thanks for a quick, easy, very versatile chili.
