This is the best chili ever! I don't remember where I got the orginal recipe for this, but I've tweeked it to fit our tastes.


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook ground beef until evenly browned.
  2. Drain off grease, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. In a slow cooker, combine the cooked beef, kidney beans, tomatoes, celery, red bell pepper, and red wine vinegar.
  4. Season with chili powder, cumin, parsley, basil and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Stir to distribute ingredients evenly.
  6. Cook on High for 6 hours, or on Low for 8 hours.
  7. Pour in the wine during the last 2 hours.

I added a can of corn. And it was a huge hit. If you don't eat meat try it with Veggie crumbles. Topped with some shredded Taco Cheese it's excellent!

Rated 5 stars by my husband. I'm not much of a chili fan so I couldn't rate it properly. He rated it a 5 because he said he'd like me to make it again. It is a very, very mild chili.
