Mild-Mannered Chili
December 05, 2013

I've made a lot of chili recipes, and thought this one was pretty nice. I made it exactly as written. It was a little interesting that no onions (or even onion powder) was in it, as most chilis have it - I didn't miss them, though. It was also a bit unusual, and nice, that two kinds of beans were used. I happen to like blazing-hot food, and this was definitely mild-mannered. It might have just been my crock-pot (mine is very large), but I found that the chili didn't get all that hot after cooking for 3 hours on Low. The chili came out nice and thick, and was perhaps a bit too heavy on the tomato flavor. I didn't really mind these last points, but, noting that three kinds of tomatoes were used here, I might have cut back, or even omitted, the tomato paste, for example. Overall, I liked this - it lasted me for two nights, totaling four big bowlfuls. It might not be the best chili ever, but it's still worth recommending.
