I looked for a chili recipe which fit the things I had on hand..I also wanted to use my can of navy beans. I made this recipe as is minus the pinto beans( didnt have any) and with approx 3/4 pound of ground beef ( this was the amount in a package which i had defrosted). I made a little more, than directed, sauce since we like our chili saucy. This is the BEST chili recipe which I have tried. We liked this better than all of the other recipes which I have tried of Zaar. The amount of spice was just right. This is a simple recipe yet was really delicious. I will be making this again!

  4. Add spices and blend.
  5. Add tomatoes and beans. Stir well and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring every few moments. If the chili is too think, add some water.
