"A copycat recipe for Tim Hortons chili which is now a family favorite. According to Tim Hortons description of their chili it has 'ground beef blended with kidney beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers, onion and celery' so I think this recipe is very close to the real thing. If cooking the chili in a crock pot, drain the tomatoes; cover and cook on low for about 5 hours. Chili can be made ahead and refrigerated overnight. Freezes well too so would be good OAMC recipe. Prep time, cooking time, and servings are estimates."

"I made a batch of this chili to freeze dinners for my father-in-law. It's delicious! I only had a can of black beans instead of mixed. I also used red, yellow and orange peppers because I don't like green ones! That's all I changed and it turned out great! Made for PRMR tag game. Thanks foodtvfan! Tim's would be proud! :)"
"Very good family chili, made as directed. The taste reminded me of Sloppy Joes with mushrooms, celery and green peppers added. This was very meaty, with an accent of kidney beans. The spicing was mild; the sugar made it kid-friendly sweet, and probably very similar to Tim Horton's chili (although it has been years since I tasted the real thing). I'm glad I had an over-sized frying chicken skillet for my sauteing. The chili filled a 4-quart Dutch oven to a nice height. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag."
"Just a great chili recipe! I made it exactly as the recipe states, and it really was just like Timmy Ho's. Thanks so much."
"Very good! It doesn't taste like Tim's chili, but it is delicious. I will make this again and again. I cut the salt and sugar out completely. All the canned vegetables contained a ton of sodium. Next time I will add a bit of heat with chili flakes. I also added the peppers just a moment before serving so that they were hot and still crunchy."
