Texas Chili Con Carne With Beans

READY IN: 10hrs 45mins
Top Review by Boxerwing

A great basic chili. I added a little more "heat" by adding some jalapenos and some cayenne at the beginning and a few drops of tabasco at the end. I also dredged the beef in flour before browning and had a decently thick chili at the end. I found proportions of meat to veggies to beans perfect for me.
