This chili recipe is so simple to make, it feels like you're cheating! No chopping, dicing or measuring. The hardest part is browning the ground beef! The flavor is built in. Want a mild chili the whole family will love? Use mild salsa and mild smoked sausage. For spicier chili use spicy salsa and spicy smoked sausage or add some hot sauce! Thank you to Susanna, whose recipe can stand up to the champions!
