This is a great basic chili recipe. You can definitely build on it if you wish or eat it as is - it's delicious just the way it is.

Very simple but very good. It's a thick chili which I like but if you want thinner add tomato sauce instead of the paste.

Doubled the recipe and put it in my largest crock pot. We had a big group of people over and I thougth they were going to lick the crock pot clean! Excellent chili, I highly recommend it.

Used red hot chili beans in sauce & added some red pepper flakes.

Everything about the recipe was great EXCEPT it was too thick. All I added was a second can of kidney beans-undrained and a small can of tomato sauce and then filled the can with water 1 1/2 times. Now the chili is FANTASTIC!! Just the way my family likes it!!

This is a great basic chili. I don't like beans so I got rid of those, and I added corn (canned) and grean beans (canned). I also doubled the recipe and used the meat to make tacos, nachos, and a beef dip (just ad cheese and salsa mix and heat in the microwave).
Very good, and highly adaptable recipe.

Instead of the regular tomatoes I add the kind with green chiles and then toss in some jalapenos too. Good recipe!
