Beef Chili with Beans

This chili with beans and meat recipe is a favorite in our house, and can be seasoned to taste to create a mildly flavored dish or one that is extra hot for those who enjoy some additional spice. As is, this chili is not too spicy but has just enough kick and the ingredients that go into it, give it teriffic depth of flavor.

My first attempt at making chili and it did not disappoint! I added jalape?o, some cocoa powder, more beans than it called for and was a bit heavy handed with the spices, and it was delicious. This will definitely become a go-to meal in my house! :-)

I truly love this recipe. I have used it for a while and I will tell you left overs are better! Add brown sugar and I will tell you one bite has some kick and the next bite is sweet!

Both the wife and I really enjoyed this recipe. I see it being the basis for me to use (and possibly evolve) for many years to come.

Fantastic and easyrecipe to make. I used orange and yellow pepers instead but everything else I did as in the recipie. Put in a little extra chillie powder and red pepper flakes for an extra kick.

Perfect recipe, not complicated and I love that it has the spices that I usually like to add separately to any chili. Great recipe for any level of cooking experience too.
