My family loves this recipe. Kid-friendly, great for sleepover nights. The key is to chop all veggies big so the flavors get incorporated but they're able to be picked out by the picky eater. Pair with honey cornbread and call 'come and get it!'

Big P's Classic Chili Haiku: "It's been a long time since a chili's been 5 stars but I loved this lots!" I make a different chili recipe about once a week and rarely do I go back and make a recipe a 2nd time around or at least making it the same way again. THIS chili might change that (thanks Big P!) as I really liked it that much that I'll probably make it again. It was easy to put together I actually liked the big hunks of red onion and celery (although I'd consider adding bell pepper) and all the ingredients were easy to come by and all came together for a fantastic no-fussiness chili.

This was very good and simple resulting in a mild chili that everyone will like. I made it exactly as stated but as usual for us I ended up adding a little molasses to add a little sweetness. Read More
