I was spending a cold and rainy day in Atlanta with my 11 yr old daughter and she said "chili would be great tonight daddy". I am a single dad and the only chili I have ever made was straight out of the can, so I decided to do alittle search. I ended up with this recipe, we went to the store for the ingredients and now my daughter thinks that I make the "best" chili she has ever had ("it's the bomb") was her exact words, lol. Thank you for saving me and for such great chili.

Great chili! The best i've made. The 3 hour simmer is key, brings out the flavors. Thanks for posting =)

Tested this as my first recipe in my new pressure cooker. Nice and easy! I topped it with some chopped chives.

I love this recipe it is so easy and so tasty. I do agree it tastes better as the days go by. I've even made it already for a dinner party coming up in a few days. This chili freezes very well and is just as yummy reheated.

Blue ribbon goes to chilli that can be reheated again. Worked well in the crockpot.

This is not chili! It was a good tomato stew with chili powder, but definitely not chili. Real chili does not have: bell pepper, so much tomato, thyme, cayenne or beans (and especially pre-made canned "chili" beans). And never, ever tofu. Again, OK as a stew but should not be called "chili."

Great recipe and very easy. I used kidney beans for the chili beans and I put a little less then 1/2 cup of chili powder. It turned out great. Thanks for sharing.

The chili was great I made it for a superbowl party. Very easy to make I added some additional peppers to add some spice.

I loved this recipe, to add a bit of heat I replaced 2 cans of diced tomatoes with 2 cans of diced & fire roasted tomatoes! :) yumm..
