Presidential Debate Chili
Best chili I've ever had/made.
Being a incredibly novice TEENAGE male cook, I was a little cautious about how something like chili would come out first time from scratch. A tradition in our family: chili on Halloween, so I wanted to make it from scratch. No flavors clash, and unlike Nana I actually used MORE oregano (I used ground, the ingredients didn't clarify which one to use) and it tasted just as well. One little flaw, and while it's not really anything bad, it's worth taking a note: the ingredients stick to the bare minimum. If you like something such as onion (like me!) you will want to add A LOT. I ended up adding about 35 oz of tomato and a whole onion half. Plus, the recipe is not too spicy, so that's somewhat good. Another note is that I replaced those nasty ranch beans with kidney and black beans and this was the final result.
-Incredibly easy to make, just mix it all together.
-SO GOOD. My whole family, plus two friends said it was 5 *s.
-Time to make is great; once it's boiling it's done. The hour wait isn't really needed.
-Pretty mild for little kids or non-fans of spice.
-Simply a good looking meal. I'll be uploading a picture of mine.
-I didn't add cheese, but I bet it would be great with it.
-After waiting the hour, most of the liquid was gone. I suggest either add some water or don't boil for TOO long.
-Wasn't too spicy, which I would've liked.
