This was a nice, simple recipe. I am not even a chili fan (my husband made it), and I really enjoyed it. It's not overly hot, which I liked, because then each cook/eater can "spice it up" as they wish.

This was a very easy and quick recipe! However, I did do some tweaking the first time I made it and would probaby do a little more tweaking the next time. I like heat so I used diced tomatoes w/ chilies (may not be available everywhere) and also added a dash of cayenne powder and 2 dashes of tobasco sauce. The only other thing I'd change is to add more eat and/or include less tomato paste because the end result was a little too tomatoey and not as meaty or thick as I like it.
