Sautee garlic and onion in saved grease.

Host a chili party!
Double, triple, quadruple the recipe, and host a party (can you say Football?)

Children especially enjoy adding their own "extras"

Mix-ins and toppers for your chili:

-Corn chips (like Fritos)
-shredded cheeses
-chopped onion
-chopped green pepper
-sliced jalapeno
-oyster crackers
-sour cream
-a variety of hot sauces
-sweet corn
-cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its)
Also try serving your chili over baked potato, rice, or noodles.
