"My husband won't eat beans but LOVES chili, so I had to come up with this variation on an old favorite. Instead, it contains lots of canned tomatoes and onion. This is great served over rice with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Ground turkey may be substituted for ground beef." — GINAGINA

hot pepper sauce
1 (28 ounce) can
red wine vinegar
My husband refuses to eat beans. He loved this chili. I used worcester sauce instead of red wine vinegar the first time and liked it better.
Almost double the spices are needed and unless you like vinegar please omit the red wine vinegar, it's too overpowering.
My son's preschool has an annual "hot dogs with dad supper." The only thing left on the sign up sheet was a crock pot of chili so I thought I'd better test this out before I subjected all of those 3 and 4 year olds and their daddies. I made this for about 10 people for dinner. (to go with hot dogs) It got nothing but rave reviews from everyone--young and old. It's not spicy (which is really good for my needs) but had a lot of flavor. My husband said this is the only chili recipe he didn't feel the need to add a bunch of ketchup to. So a success indeed. It will be making its debut at the preschool in a few weeks!!
I'm kicking Hormel chili out the door! Home-made, healthy (no bugs or odds & ends to worry about down at the chili plant! ew!!) and my family really LOVED Frito-chili night. SO FAST & EASY TO MAKE!! Our daughter will be making us this for chili dogs, Frito-chili, and anything else we can think to top it with, spaghetti?
We served ours in big bowls with Frito chips on bottom, then some shredded cheddar cheese, the chili, then some avacodos and onions, we were out of tomatoes so we omitted the thought for this time, the kids liked more cheese & some sour cream on top. Black beans will be there next time --on the side. VERY GOOD! Put a bowl of condiments in the center for everyone to personalize theirs!
This is really good chili for my family. I have to feed 8 differant people with 8 differant tastes and sets of allergies every day, and(after I substituted shallots for the garlic) even the pickiest eater loved it.
The defalt spicyness of the chili is quite low, but that is easily fixed. I also suggest adding a can or two of mild diced green chilis, and using balsamic vinigar instead of the red wine vinigar. It adds a really nice flavor.
I Love It! I substituted diced and whole tomatoes for the crushed tomatoes and mashed them with a potato masher and used 1/4 tsp of garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and it turned out great with ingredients that I had on hand. This recipe is one that I'll use again.
My family liked the chili, I am from Ohio and we don't believe that beans belong in chili...so I wanted to try your recipe. The only thing we noticed was that it had a bit too much vinegar in it..I think next time I will just reduce that a bit. Overall, really good and really easy to make! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Great recipe. Lots of flavor. My kids hate beans so this was perfect for them. I did add some additional seasonings but this was a great start.
