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.

Came out a but spicy for my sons, but quite delicious! Of course, I added 5 spicy Itslian sausage to the ground beef and an extra can of crushed tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe!!

This was surprisingly good. Like the flavor and the consistency. Family liked it, so that's important. Allows for easy changes such as more beans or pepper for additional heat.

Amazing! We love spicy, so I threw in some ghost pepper seasoning and sriracha. Very good chili!

I tried this recipe for our Halloween block party, and everyone loved it. I will be cooking this at our Firehouse next.

A very nice chili. Nice consistency and perfect portion of beef to bean (not too many). This is delicious and will be my staple recipe!

Pretty basic. But just how I like it.

This is my new favorite chili recipe. Perfect level of spice for our children and not too many beans. As promised, the flavor was improved the next day (although it was very good when fresh).

Excellent recipe. Will have this as a favorite. Only mods were to add a couple of stalks of celery (diced) and 1/2 pkt of prepared chili seasoning with the spices in this recipe (for 4 servings). We prefer a spicy chili.

My wife said "I'm not as big of a fan of chili as you and I could eat this every week. This is the best chili I've ever had." And I have to agree!

Another great recipe from sgrishka! Loved the spices and flavor. Spicy but not over the top. Next time I will add some chopped jalapeños to put on top when serving. Thank you for my new favorite chili recipe :-)

The combination of spices were spot on. This will now be my go-to chili recipe.

LOVED THIS RECIPE! I left out the red pepper flakes and coriander because I didn't have any and it was mild but wonderful and so much flavor. Cooked it in the crockpot and it was so easy!

Awesome chili!! Best I ever made. The paradise island chili powder was great. I have three boys and they beg me to make chili now. The only thing they asked me todo is add more beans.

Left out the tomato puree, thought it would be too soupy...still turned out great! Def saving this one :-)

Used ground turkey and cut back on the spices .

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! :-)
