This is the chili my family has been enjoying for years. I make it so it isn't too spicy for the kids, but feel free to kick it up.

Love this recipe! It's fast and easy! My 2 year old Daughter says, Mommy it's spicy... I like it!" It has great flavor and isn't too spicy for the little mouths.

Wondeful! I used half the amount of chili powder and left out the pepper flakes 'cause we don't like it too hot. I also left out the beans 'cause DH doesn't like them. I have been looking for a chili recipe we can all agree on and this is it. We all loved it and I didn't even add any extras. I was very tempted to empty my spice pantry into the pot but I resisted until I took a taste and realized it really didn't need anything. Thanks for posting. I'll be making this again.

I wasn't sure of this recipe as it had no garlic and I have never added catsup to my chili. I am not dissapointed! I will use this recipe again.
