chopped green bell pepper
2 1/2 tablespoons
finely chopped jalapeno chile peppers
1 (29 ounce) can
1 (15 ounce) can
1 (16 ounce) can
chili beans, undrained
salt and pepper to taste
I did not add the jalapeno's ( HOT hot is not for me). This is a great recipe if you like a not-too-spicy chili. If you are looking for a three alarm chili or one that drains your sinuses, this is not it.
Without jalapenos, it's got just enough spice and "kick" without having to drink 10 glasses of water to cool off.
Good flavor, good consistency. I've now made it three times and everyone has loved it.
Though this recipe is indeed "easy," it is not as flavorful as many other chili recipes I have had, some of which are available at the allrecipes website. It was fine, just not as memorable as others.
I have tried many different chili recipes and this one is our family's favorite! We did NOT omit the jalapenos and it is not that spicy! My 3-year-old eats it. I adjust nothing and make it as the recipe indicates every time and its fantastic. Leftovers freeze well.
Nice easy chili, this is almost the same chili that I grew up on (with the exemption of the jalapenos). I used 1 tbsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of oregano and 2 cloves of garlic, although it coulda used 3. I seeded the jalapeno and didn't find it that hot, so next time I will just chop up the whole thing and add maybe 3 tbsp. of chili powder (the way mom used to). As with all sauces & chili make sure that you adjust the seasonings before serving. (I am full from all the taste testing, so I had to skip dinner tonight, tomorrows lunch for me). Thanks for the easy recipe Danielle!
I love this chili! I like it thicker and add two cans of tomatoes instead of one, two cans of chili beans and two cans of kidney beans. I do not adjust anything else and it turns out great!
Great chili! Try browning the meat in Guiness, it really brings out the flavor in the meat.
Ahh, finally! I never could get the ingredients correct when doing chili on my own w/out a package. I left out the jalapenos for the kids sakes. I added 3 TBS chili powder, 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 TBS of cumin, 1/2 TBS of oregano, and a can of tomatoes instead of the sauce (only because I didn't have sauce on hand). I also cooked up my own pinto beans because I didn't have any red or pinto canned. Even if I didn't use the recipe to a T it gave me a base from which to build from. I'll make sure and try it the recipe way next time.
I've never made chili before, and searched tons of recipes. Found this one, and SO GLAD I DID. I did end up adding more chili powder, but that was the only change. I loved that is was spicy, but not unbearable. Delicious, can't wait to make it again!
