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.

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.

Big hit at my house! I did have to cut a little off its kick for the kids.

Has to say it's surprisingly bland and the peppers gaved it too much asic. Would not do for again.
