My husband, the inspiration and occasional author, of the recipes I share is a very picky eater. He does not mind the tomato juice in this recipe, but does not like actual tomatoes.

This is our basic recipe. It absolutely can (and should) be modified to add onions and tomatoes if you like those vegetables in your chili. I do; he does not. This is one of those "wars" that was easier to give in on than not.

Chili is not something we reserve only for fall and winter, although we make it more often then. I hope you'll enjoy this as much as we do!
