This was delicious! It was very much enjoyed by the whole family. I used Tinkerbelle's suggestion and served it over spaghetti noodles with garlic cheesy bread on the side. I topped the spaghetti with shredded cheddar cheese.....it was sooooo good. I added a tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, a bay leaf, and a teaspoon each of dried oregano and basil and some fresh cracked black pepper and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the recipe.I will use this for chili spaghetti all the time! R.I.P. Stacey, thanks for posting all these treasured wonderful recipes!

We really enjoyed this chili recipe. Great flavor to it and very easy to prepare. I didn't start in time to use the crock pot, so I let it simmer for about 2 hours on the stove. Delish! I served it over spaghetti noodles (as I do most often with chili) & garlic sourdough toast on the side. Made in remembrance of Stacy.

Absolutely wonderful chili! I forgot the celery at the store so that didn't end up in it but will not hesitate to add it next time. I combed this site for 3 hours looking for just the right chili and am so glad I picked this recipe. My picky husband loved it (rare for him) as well as I. Only substitution made was the kidney beans. What I had in the cupboard was way past the expiration date (which I found out at the last minute) so I used black beans which ended up being just as superb. Thank you very much for this 10 star recipe!! Note: this is a suber tasty base recipe. If you like hot chili you may need to adjust the heat level a bit up. Don't hesistate to give it a try thought as it's very very good!

Wonderful! We had this for lunch yesterday, and I will definitely make it again. I love the rich tomato flavor of this chili! I didn't have mushrooms on hand, so I just left those out. I also added 1 t cayenne pepper. Thank you for sharing the recipe for your mom's fabulous chili!

Yep, your mom knew what she was doing. I had to use the speed method (stovetop -- wife was soon coming home from work hungry and I much fear "she who must be obeyed"), and I confess that I added 20 oz. of water and 20 oz. of chicken stock because I can't abide thick chili -- but the great flavor held up to my reckless machinations. I doubled the recipe and at the very end, it seemed to need a little salt (I like salt) so I tossed in a tsp. of Lowry's seasoned salt and it was just right for me. I will freeze some of this and I will make it again. Thanks, Stacky, for a super traditional-type chili.

OUTSTANDING chili and a wonderful reflection on your Mom's cooking. Lucky you to have had such a great cook in the house and lucky us for getting this recipe! I did make some changes based on what I had on hand, omitting the soup and mushrooms, but I can tell they'd be great additions and will make sure to have them handy next time. And there WILL BE a next time. Several! I served it with cornbread muffins which paled in comparison. Thanks so much, Stacy, for a great keeper!
