      This was the 1st time I made chili, so I followed the recipe exactly. It was very good and I had some leftover for lunch the next day, plus some for the freezer. I plan to make Left-over Chili Bake(#18046).

      This is my go-to chili recipe. I use one large onion, diced carrots and a whole med. size green pepper. I up the chili powder to one heaping tablespoon and I add a sliced, seeded jalapeno. I don't add the tequila or bouillon cube and I hate thickening a good recipe with flour and water. I don't rinse the two 19oz. cans of red kidneys so the starch is from the beans thickens the chili. Great to freeze!! Thanks Mike!!

      I found this recipe about a year ago and have been making this version ever since. It's very flavorful and everyone at works loves it when I bring it for potlucks. Don't cook it too long or you'll loose the freshness of the tomatoes and peppers.
