I made this exactly as written except I used extra lean ground turkey. It lived up to it's name - it was def. a simple chili. It was tasty as well. Thanks for posting.

Super yummy served over Frito's!
I didn't have onion, but did have French Onion soup which I added to the recipe. My girls loved it!!

I was looking for a simple chili recipe and this one was perfect. I added a can of Rotel but otherwise kept it close to the original recipe. The boys loved it. Great Friday night meal!

I made this on 6/25/10 for mine and SO's dinner. I wanted to be sure that there was enough for leftovers so it was made as follows, 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef was browned with 3/4 th cup of chopped sweet onion. Also used 2 14 1/2 ounce cans of fired roasted diced tomatoes with garlic. I used 10 ounces of tomato sauce, 1 1/2 Tablespoon of chili powder, 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, and S & P to taste. The chili was simmered for about an hour, then 2 cans of kidney beans were drained, rinsed, then added. Then it was simmered for about 10 to 15 minutes more. The taste was very good, and I can see where this basic recipe has alot of possibilities to make to suit your families needs. This will be made again. Thank you for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

I'm not a big chili fan, but I LOVE this recipe. For additional calories, a dollop of sour cream is delicious. As leftovers, I put it on nacho chips with cheese, etc., then melt in oven. Oh my god it's amazing! I like that you can use all natural, healthy ingredients in the recipe.

Delicious! We had to add some more cumin and chili powder, and salt and pepper but it was amazing in the end!

I don't know whether you are all on drugs but this recipe was completely bland and tasteless, there were no flavors.

I absolutely hate chili. My husband doesn't care for it either. However, last week we were snowed in and chili sounded perfect for some reason. There were no leftovers. I'm making it again tonight. I did tweak the seasonings a bit. I used 1 tsp of cumin, 1 tsp of onion powder (instead of chopped onion), 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper and 3 tsp of minced garlic. Absolutely perfect. Thank you!

Good basic milder chili that most all chili likers will eat. It can be easily modified to suit your tastes. I usually double the recipe, add less beans and less meat that the recipe calls for. Also, I add one tsp. sugar and a couple squirts of ketchup to get rid of the acidity taste of the tomato. In our region, chili is is served more as a soup and this recipe can be thinned with beef broth to get the correct thickness. Thanks for posting.
