    Japanese Delight's Note:

    By far the best tasting chili I've ever had! Easy to make and easy on the wallet. Sometimes I only add the one pound of ground beef and a extra can of beans to replace the sausage. And of course serve it with cornbread! Tip: If you don't like the acidy flavor/effect the canned tomatoes give off, when the chili (or any other tomato based sauce like spaghetti) is boiling, stir in a half teaspoon of baking soda. It'll bubble and foam up for a minute then disappear. It'll magically remove it. For me, it's a must!

      I keep coming back to this recipe because it's easy, it's basic with easy ingredients, and it's easy to improvise from. The recipe as is here is a bit underspiced but that's just a matter of throwing in more of whatever you like.

      Excellent chili! For health reasons, I lowered the sodium by making a few changes: I used sweet Italian *turkey* sausage, no-salt-added tomatoes, low-sodium beef stock, and cut the salt down by half. The end result was so good, no one missed the salt at all. :) I also had to used dried cilantro and parsley -- 2 tablespoons and 1 tablespoon, respectively -- because I had none of the fresh handy. I also added a touch more garlic, and used two unseeded jalapenos. Either this makes 10 very modest-size servings, or my guests just *really* loved it, but all I know is that I made it for a group of 5 people... and had NONE of the chili left at the end of dinner. Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
