It's Chili by George!!
November 12, 2005

I think chili is one of those things in which we all expect something slightly different. I think that this is a really good recipe, or at least the the base to a really great chili. I have made it at least 3 times now. I made it in a slow cooker/crockpot for the first time yesterday....came out thinner than in my soup pot, so keep that in mind(nonetheless, I thought it was my best tasting batch yet). I like a little more beans so I bought a bigger can of pinto beans. I also put a small can of diced tomatoes for chili in the pot(my husband doesn't like chunks of tomatoes). If I have any tomato products that I want to clean out of my fridge(ex. salsa, chili sauce, etc.), I throw those in too. I also use 3 tablespoons of brown sugar instead of the white. And I am usually doubling the spices(except for the chili powder and I haven't tried cayenne pepper yet). I really don't think you can go wrong with this. I get compliments everytime. Since I am new to making chili, I keep referring to this one to make sure I get at least the basics in. Try it. Taste it. And if you need to...modify to your taste. That's what I do. Then I usually put it on top of some macaroni noodles and top that with sharp cheddar, chopped onion, and Fritos....YUM!!!
