Default Chili Recipe

Does anyone have a simple but out of this world chili recipe? I've only made it one other time, but I lost my recipe. I've been searching online and there are so many different types out there. I just want a simple & easy recipe. Thanks!

I have one but it has several spices. Does that make it hard?

Mine is very easy and takes just a little while.

I buy a bag of
and follow their instructions.

It's 2 lbs ground beef, a couple of cans of tomatoes, the seasonings that come with it, some tomato paste, and I throw in whatever I feel like adding (onions, mushrooms
, peppers, etc.).

You can do it in the crock pot or just in a stock pot on the stove and it doesn't take long at all.

I LOVE IT! In fact, I want to eat it right now!!

Here's mine...

2 LARGE cans of kidney beans
2 lbs of hamburger
2 tomatos, diced (canned if you are short on time)
3-4 cans of diced green chilis
1 can of sweet corn
1-2 white onions chopped
1 green bell pepper finely chopped
1/4 cup chili powder
1 TSP cayenne pepper
1 1/2 TSP cumin
1 TSP white sugar
salt and pepper

It sounds like a lot, but I throw all the ingrediants together with half of the seasonings and let it cook on medium for an hour or so. It will seem really thick at first, but as it simmers it will thin out. I will taste and adjust the seasoning as I go to get it to the desired heat. If it gets too hot, add tomato paste or more tomatos.

OK... here's mine...

Buy a McCormick "Mild Chili" packet at the grocery store & follow the directions on the back of the packet

You only need:
1lb hamburg
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
(and the packet

I add 1/4 - 1/3 cup of either rice or pastina after it's cooked so it's thicker. (Just let it sit for about 5min after you add it!)
We also sprinkle shredded cheese on top... yummy!

And if you want more... just double the recipe. It freezes pretty well too!
