I used this before with beans and it was pretty good. However since then I have tweaked it alittle. I left the beans out and added a jar of pace picante. I also added more of the hot stuff. What ever I may have around. Hot sauce,more,chili powder or cheyenne. Thanks you Audrey

Loved it. I used ground beef and ground pork though. Added fresh minced cilantro to bowl just before serving.

It did need quite a bit of tweaking. Namely, no Texas Chili has beans. Second, using a salsa isn't bad, but a true Texas Chili would use Pace Picante, made right here in Texas. Contrary to the name, Old El Paso derives from Minneapolis, way the he@# up north in Minnesota. Overall, this recipe is quite good. Most of the time I won't even consider a Texas Chili that lists beans in it's ingrediants. They are mostly posers. Good job on this one!
