      I am not a bean person, so I make my chili without beans, add a little brown sugar and the tomaotes. It is so delicious. We love it.

    I just made the recipe again last night.  Chili is a great staple and a great dish for the hungry person.  Thanks for commenting.

    There are two things I love about chili (aside from the fact that it tastes good, which is important!) -

    1. I can adapt it for vegetarians and non-vegetarians in the family (make one big batch, add cooked ground beef to half)

    2. Leftovers! It freezes so, so well. And that means extra meals in a beautiful no-cooking-required future smile

      Wish the same applied to me lol

      One of my favourite ways to start the day is with a bowl of reheated, leftover chilli con carne and a cup of freshly brewed coffee with a bit of sugar or honey.

      Breakfast of champions.

    So..... Is it true that Winter Farts are Much Warmer, after a good chili meal?  hmm big_smile

    To me there is nothing better than a pot of chili simmering on the stove, warm cornbread waiting to be eaten, and a good book to top off a winter day.
    The best part of my chili would be the spices. Nothing like a little kick without the punch.
