This was one of the best chilis I have ever made. I turned this into chili mac and we raved over this simple but delicious dish. I scaled this down to half, used ground chuck and cooked the onion and garlic right in as I browned the beef. I had to use what I had on hand but this recipe is so versatile that it still turned out so tasty. I used Texas sweet onion, Del Fuerte mexican tomato sauce, half a can of roma tomato paste instead of Italian style diced tomatoes, a can of stewed tomatoes, 1 can of Bush's chili beans, a splash of white vinegar,a hefty pinch of cocoa powder, and replaced the water with beef broth because I had it open in the fridge. I forgot to add the hot pepper sauce, but that may have been a plus considering hubs no longer has his cast iron stomach.
