"This is a fun, colorful dish that is hearty and delicious. Great served with a simple salad or bread and butter. I use the hot chili, but mild would work fine too."

Well, I ended up not having Chili with beans, so I added two cans of chili ready diced tomatoes and black beans. I used frozen corn instead of canned. I also added fresh garlic to the hamburger....

This is missing something... can't quite figure out what that would be. Maybe some type of sauce would help, or adding some grated cheese. It's bland, even with the chili and spices. I added ...
