This is a dad-friendly meal and is easy to make. We swap beans for ones our family likes (red beans and pinto beans), but this will work with most anything along those lines.
This is a very good chili the whole family enjoyed on a chilly evening (well, as chilly as it gets in San Diego, which is never overly cool). I followed the ingredients and directions with just a couple of minor exceptions; I used a spicy Mexican 8 oz. can of tomato sauce and a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes with garlic. Since I used the spicier tomato sauce, I eliminated the cayenne pepper. We love spicy food and it certainly was with my small changes. Served with corn bread to round out a perfect meal. Thanks for sharing Chef Lil' Momma Jenn.
I used my precooked ground beef I had in the freezer which really help speed things up. Since both beans were to be drained, I just used a 30 oz can of dark red kidney beans. I also added more garlic and a little less cayenne pepper, as I have young children eating this. Made for Rejoice! It's "National Tomato Month" tag game! 2012
I made this as a side dish so I used 1/2 pound ground beef and 1 can of beans. It was quick and easy. I usually don't put green chilis in red chile, and found it was a great idea. I did find it was a bit bland as written, so I increased the garlic and the chile powder and added some oregano.
Hubby absolutely loved this one! The only changes I made were to increase the garlic salt to 1 teaspoon garlic powder (we LOVE garlic) and use 1/4 teaspoon regular salt. I also used 2 cans of chili beans. I left everything else the same. It is on the hot side and I used mild Hatch chilies, so you may want to dial back the heat a bit if you're not that adventuresome! Momma Jenn, thank you for a wonderful addition to my "collection". It will definitely go into my regular rotation. Thank you also for posting the recipe in it's original form and noting your changes! I wish more posters did it that way instead of posting their "adaptations". Thanks again!
This is sooooo good and soooo easy to prepare. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing. Great comfort food. Can't wait to make it again. Thanks for sharing, Chef Lil' Momma Jenn.
