"This is a simple recipe for Texas chili I learned from my mother. I like my chili with a little fire to it but you can adjust this recipe to your liking. This is a chili that only gets better the second day so don't worry about using a large pot and having more than your family can eat the first night because you can have it a couple of nights later. ENJOY. I know I do every time I make this chili.
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

lean ground beef
bell pepper, minced
3 (15 ounce) cans
2 (28 ounce) cans
4 (8 ounce) cans
jalapeno peppers, minced
crushed red pepper flakes
ground black pepper
I'm going to try this in the slow-cooker--has anyone done this yet, and how did it turn out?
ok... first i must say that real texas chili does not have beans.......not bad for a starter.... but i made these changes....
i used extra lean chili meat instead of ground beef, 2 cans of rotel tomatoes instead of the tomatoes and the tomato sauce,1 galic clove chopped instead of garlic powder, 2 teaspoons of cumin powder, 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper and 1 can of beer.....
This was, as billed: easy, delicious and classic. I omitted the chopped chili for the younger members of the family and left it simmering on low for the afternoon and it was delicious. Perfect for a rainy Seattle fall day. Not that it rains here...
Love this chili----Easy recipe ---- Did not add anything----
I added fresh garlic cloves, and a beer. Simmered for about 4-5 hrs. Best chili i've ever made.
I've never been a fan of chili but this was amazing. I did need to make a few alterations out of necessity. I substituted the jalapenos for 3 hot cherry peppers and only used 3T. of chili powder. This was a great half time meal for my family/guests
Awesome starter chili recipe! I love to use this recipe as a base and then change it up!
For example, change out a pound of the ground beef for a pound of ground spicy or sweet italian sausage (without casings)
I also love to mix up the type of beans used to give the chili some character. I made this for an event and used one can of butter beans, one can of kidney beans and one can of pinto beans (same sized cans). It was a hit!
Don't be afraid to make small changes to this great base!
I won't say this is the BEST chili recipe but it certainly is easy to make and requires little effort for a nice end product. I browned my meat and threw everything into the slow cooker while I was making holiday cookies and it was a nice warm treat when I was finished with my baking. This goes great with some cheese and sour cream on top!
