Now this is good stuff. I've made a lot of chili in my time and this one made my husband rave. I thought it was a good basic no frills recipe and stands on it's own well enough. I only had a half of a Texas sweet onion. 8 oz. of mexican tomato sauce, a small can of tomato paste to which I added 1 can of beef consomme, Ranch Style beans, chipotle diced tomatoes. The next time I fix this I will add a 1/2 tsp of oregano, cocoa powder, 1 T of vinegar, 1 T sugar, and doubling the chili powder. This was a great starting point though and with a few tweaks will be my own (and Melanie's) 5 star chili. I let this simmer almost an hour and served it over spaghetti pasta then topped it with parmesan and a blend of shredded mexican cheese. We loved this meal!!! Thanks so much for the great chili. This was our first official chili dinner for the fall/winter 2012/13 season and it sure was a great one.
