Kimi's notes for this recipe:
When I went to make my chili this past weekend, I did not have all my ingredients so I just started dumping what I had in the cupboard. My husband and son told me this was the best chili I have ever made. I have to say it received 5 stars for this girl. I had 2 bowls which I never do..we all ended up eating 3 bowls each.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


In stock pot on high brown the ground beef and onion & peppers. Add seasonings to meat.
Add all tomato products, then all beans. Add the taco seasoning. I taste as I go so I usually add more of the seasonings till I get it to my liking.
Cook on medium for and hr, then turn down to low and cook till flavors are just right.
You can add toppings such as cheese, sour cream, pour over a salad with nachos. We ate ours plain with bread.

Another good chili...there are so many good ones on here to try.
I have used all these ingredients in my chili before except for the taco seasoning mix...I have not put that in my chili before.

I made chili last week and had the same problem...not all of the ingredients. I didn't have nearly enough chili powder so I added extra cumin, an envelope of taco seasoning, cocoa and a can of green chilis. It was one of the best chilis I ever made.
