    PanNan's Note:

    This chili is great with or without beans. I prefer without, but my family prefers with. It's an adaptation of Wic Fowlers chili mix. I measured the ingredients one time and added my own touches to change the recipe to our taste. You can speed up cooking time using the pressure cooker for 15 minutes.

      I have so many different chili recipes I use (it's one of my all-time favorite meals) and I came across this and decided to try it after seeing the delicious looking photos of it! I made it for husband and I last week and we both LOVED IT!!! I did make a few small changes - but left "basic" recipe as is. I used 1.5 lbs of beef because that's what I had in my fridge (rather than 2 lbs), I pureed my can of diced tomatos in my food chopper as hubby doesn't like chunks of tomato and I added 1/2 green pepper (diced) to the chili because I like to get some veggies somewhere in my meals! I also let it simmer for MUCH longer (almost 4 hours) to "merry" all of the tastes more.... it was SO perfect and will definitely make it again. We added a bit of grated mexican cheese on the top... and had garlic sticks on the side! We had it for leftovers the next day (lunch) and it was even BETTER!! Yum!!!!!

      I made one small change, adding fresh onion in lieu of dried. This came together easily and is very tasty. This may be my fall-back go-to recipe from now on. Thanks PanNan - this isn't the first of your recipes that I've thoroughly enjoyed.
