The best beef chili in my book. Freezes well.

We raked and burned leaves all day Saturday. I made this chili the night before. We had worked up quite an appetite and it really hit the spot. Highly seasoned and very delicious. It makes quite a lot so I froze half for us to have later on. The only ingredient I left out was the browning sauce--not real sure what that is, but the flavor wasn't missing anything.

  3. Bring to a boil; reduce heat; simmer uncovered, for 30 minutes or until chili reaches desired thickness.
