I think that this is a perfect Chili recipe for those like me who don't like a lot of heat but enjoy great flavours. I had some difficulty with this but it was all of my own creation. I used pre-soaked dried beans and knew that they wouldn't cook in 15 minutes so added them with the tomato and spices. Even then I totally underestimated the time required to get the beans soft so that by the time the beans were soft the ground beef wasn't really the best texture. Totally my fault! It seems that I had especially wimpy chili powder because I ended up doubling the amount shown. The end result was a chili recipe that we will return to many times. Next time I'll cook the beans better first! Thanks for sharing Tina!

This is really good! After assembling it I let it cook on the stove over low heat for a couple hours and it really thickened up nicely. I did omit the green pepper per personal choice as well as the bay leaf and used red beans instead of kidney as it was what I had on hand. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Fall 08
