Very good basic recipe. First time I made this I followed recipe as written, having made this many times these are the modifications I now make: Add 1 pound italian sausage to the beef mixture. Decrease tomato sauce to 16 oz, add the following: 2 cans diced tomotoes ( drained), double the beans, 1 tsp paprika, increase cumin to 2 tsp, 1 T worcestershire sauce, 2 tsp red pepper sauce ( Franks brand), increase cayene pepper to 1/4 tsp, 1 tsp basil, 1 T garlic ( minced), 1 T cocoa, 8 oz beer. Skip the white sugar and use 1 T brown sugar instead. As listed this is a great starting point for chili, by customizing it this becomes outstanding! Thanks George for sharing!
