"...Variations, both geographic and personal, involve different types of meat and ingredients..."

If you want to call it "chili," it's chili. In Springfield, Illinois it can even be called "chilli."

Chili has been, and will be a colloquial term.

The tomato subject is just as sensitive as the bean subject.

At the end of the day, it is a matter of regional/personal preference.

No doubt. Does bring to mind the old Pace Picante sauce commercials.

Domestic Goddess Chili

2 lbs. ground beef
1 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chili powder
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 (8 ounce) jars taco sauce, mild or medium
2 (15 ounce) cans red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
shredded cheddar cheese, to garnish chili
tortilla chips, to scoop up chili

Cook ground beef in a Dutch oven over high heat; stirring to break up meat, until no longer pink (for 3 minutes).

Add onions; cook and stirring until translucent (for 2 minutes).

Stir in chili powder and garlic; cook one minute.

Stir in tomato sauce and taco sauce. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat, and simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes.

Stir in the kidney beans and heat through.

Top each bowl with shredded cheddar cheese, and scoop up the chili with the tortilla chips.

Makes 8-10 servings.

Note: This recipe states to add 1/4 cup of chili powder, and yes, that's exactly how much I put in my chili.



General chilli recipe,hard to go wrong with this one, only thing i would do different is cook the hamburger separately so i can drain the fat before adding the meat to the rest of the ingredients, i'd also add some Tabasco sauce.

jambo101, normally I do drain off any excess grease after cooking the beef and onions, but... I WOULD NOT ADD TABASCO SAUCE after making this chili, it will ruin the flavor of the chili. Taste it first, then you'll know what I mean. I highly suggest making the chili as written first. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
