Notes about this recipe

  • Cheri on February 22, 2015

    This was easy and pretty good, but I doubled the kidney beans (or it would have been too meaty for us), used one can of crushed tomatoes and one can diced tomatoes, bumped up the ancho chili powder, and added about 1/2 pkg frozen corn, one chopped red bell pepper and sprinkled in a bit of cumin. Everyone was quite satisfied with this wintery dish.

    Just what i was looking for. Simple chili with not too complex flavoring that appeals to kids as well! I added some sweet sausage and a bit more tomato as well as 2 t. cumin. Will have to try adding the corn as well.

    Pg 62 This was a very meaty chili. It was good and filling and very easy to make but I might add some peppers and a bit of corn to up the veggies. I went with 1.5 times the suggested chilli powder.
