Great chilli, made it for a Halloween party in a crockpot (cooking on low for about eight hours), and it was gone within the hour. We reduced the beef (ground sirloin) to 1.5 pounds and added one extra can of kidney beans, and all the comments I received were that it was perfect ration of meat to beans (if you like things really meaty, leave the ratio as written). I doubled all the spices and upped the sugar to 3T of brown sugar. I left out the green pepper because I didn't have one around, and it wasn't missed. For the tomato portion, I'd imagine nearly anything you have in the fridge would work, including salsa. I used four ripe garden tomatoes (from our very last harvest), chopped, and 1 can of tomato paste diluted with 4 cans water.
