    This is my go-to chili recipe. I use one large onion, diced carrots and a whole med. size green pepper. I up the chili powder to one heaping tablespoon and I add a sliced, seeded jalapeno. I don't add the tequila or bouillon cube and I hate thickening a good recipe with flour and water. I don't rinse the two 19oz. cans of red kidneys so the starch is from the beans thickens the chili. Great to freeze!! Thanks Mike!!

    I found this recipe about a year ago and have been making this version ever since. It's very flavorful and everyone at works loves it when I bring it for potlucks. Don't cook it too long or you'll loose the freshness of the tomatoes and peppers.

    I pulled this recipe off this site about two years ago and have made it about 20-30 times since. EVERYONE loves it! I add about a tablespoon more chili powder and cumin for a stronger flavor, and use venison instead of beef. It really is fantastic!
