I added elbow macaroni for chili mac and it turned out great . I also added more garlic, 1/2 bell pepper, more chili powder, some ground cayenne, seasoning salt. I used only one can of tomatoes since I like my chili a bit on the thicker side. I also used kidney instead of black beans. A HELPFUL HINT, from KittenCal, let sit overnight for the flavors to really soak through. Only mildly spicy, even the 2 year old at the party had some! Very easy dish to make!
So easy and so good! I pretty much followed the recipe with a couple of additions: when I sauteed the meat, onion, and garlic, I also added 1/2 of a bell pepper. I also added 2 teaspoons of cumin and a dash of crushed red pepper with the chili powder and salt. We served this with fritos and cheddar cheese. My kids loved it and husband loved it, too.
I loved this - perfect for battling the sub-zero temperatures! I added a red bell pepper and a couple of serranos in place of the canned chilies. This is my new favorite chili! Thanks for a great recipe
Added diced green bell pepper + a little extra hot sauce. Next time put in a little celery or maybe canned corn. Not bad.
This was FANTASTIC. I've made this several times already and it is always a hit. Thank you for such a great and EASY recipe. :)
I enjoyed this. It was quick and easy. It reminded me of the chili my father used to make.
Good chili! We do NOT normally eat our chili with beans but are trying to eat healthier! I was shocked that dh actually ate it! It was rather tomatoey for us and we do like lots of spice so it was not hot enough- that is personal preferance. We just added some cayenne to our bowls to adjust. Next time I think we will try this with one can of tomatoes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
I'm looking foward to left overs for lunch! This is relativly easy chili to make, and it's quicker than most. Instead of using canned chilies, I choped whole chili pepers (2 oz. instead of 4oz.). Also, I forgot to add the green onions (would have been good), but I did top with a couple of avacado slices.
We enjoyed this chili. I used ground beef and left out the chilies. Our 8 year old and 5 year old loved it. We pourd it over fritos and topped with cheese and I added some avocado to mine while DH liked sour cream. This was an easy chili to make and I usually have these ingredients on hand wich makes it a great addition to my recipe collection. Thanks for posting this.
Great recipe! I made this for my bean-loving DS and added in chili flakes (lots of chili flakes!) increased the garlic to 2 tablespoons and add in some grated cheddar cheese, I strongly suggest to this a day ahead to allow flavors to blend;-) thanks for sharing this great recipe Marg!...Kitten:)
