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.

savannahchase , 9 months agoFantastic 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.
kellyjeanbean , 10 months agoPerfect 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.
17mom , 10 months agoBig hit at my house! I did have to cut a little off its kick for the kids.

Tatertotter , 10 months agoHas to say it's surprisingly bland and the peppers gaved it too much asic. Would not do for again.
jo3710 , 10 months agoMy tweaks were ground turkey instead of beef, pintos instead of kidney beans, and omitted cayenne and red chilies. It had a nice sweet flavor. Such an awesome base that it tasted great WHILE it was cooking. I can't wait to taste it in a day or two!!! I will definitely make it again
Susan47 , 10 months agoMy daughter says that I'm a good "recipe follower". I rarely make changes to a recipe. This is my Go-To Chili recipe as written...just the right heat for everyone, even my "put hot sauce on everything" son-in-law.
annabecker14811 , 10 months agoMade this whn temps were -35?. Everybody loved it and raved about how. Great it was!!
Surfcow , 11 months agoExcellent recipe! I made a meatier variation with lean stew meat, beef sausage, lean ground beef and bacon. Also, substituted can of black beans for kidney beans. Very flavorful.
danwblevinator , 11 months agoTweaked the spices a little bit, extra tablespoon of chili powder and doubled up on the pepper flakes and cayenne then and added a small can of bushes baked beans. This recipe is delicious.
MammaRaz , 11 months agoGreat! I tripled the recipe for a large crowd and it was a huge hit. The only thing I would have changed, is I wish I had made it the day before...to give the flavors time to meld even more.
Tiptop , 11 months agoMen like chilli and this made all My men very happy, I did add black beans too.
anton1336 , 11 months agoAwesome. I add a couple of extra peppers to it.
Jpmck1224 , 11 months agoThis is deelish! I am doing paleo, so I used grass-fed sirloin, coconut oil, and the rest organic. An outstanding dish!

Holly88 , 1 years agoI was hoping this would be "the" chili recipe & sadly it was not. It was good but all I tasted was the heat (cayenne & pepper flake). While I like spicy chili, I was not getting any chili flavor.

Fladawg01 , 1 years agoJust made this and it rocks! I left out the garlic and added 1 TBS of Saigon Cinnamon and a couple tablespoons of honey. Outstanding!
