I chose this recipe because of the healthy tomato products in it. It turned out to be much too thick for our liking. I had to keep thinning it. If I make it again, I'll cut back on the beef and tomato paste. Thanks for the recipe.

This is a thick tomatoey chili. I made it exactly as written other then I only used two tablespoons of chili powder and no hot sauce as I knew that would be spicey enough for me. I ate a bowl as written but it was a bit too thick for me so I added some beef broth (I didn't measure I just poured it in). I thought it was even better then. I made this for lunches and it reheated well. I served mine with cheese.
