Ok. When everyone says they used this recipe in a cook off and won, they aren't exaggerating. In a last minute decision to join the cook off, I found this recipe and decided to try it. I've never made chili before, it was simple enough and the best part was it didn't take much time to make. I did however add some minor personality touches. I found the recipe to be too thick (probably because I drained the beans), so i added two beef bouillon cubes and a cup of boiling water. I used fresh garlic, garlic powder and sea salt instead of garlic salt. I also added fresh peppers from my garden to give it that extra kick. Yum! It was a hit and yes, I won the chili cook off! - oh and one word of advise, the most important step is to let it simmer for at least an hour! I tasted it immediately and it tasted like tomato sauce. Against my will, I left it alone and let it just simmer. Then it started tasting like chili. I'm sure those more versed in chili making know this last word of advise. I added for my fellow rookies. Thanks Deb for sharing.
