I wanted a meatier chili, so I used the beef round and also ground turkey. I don't care for red kidney beens, so substituted black beans and pinto beans. I also only chopped one good sized yellow onion instead of the three the recipe calls for. This made a lot, and I sent leftovers home with people, and I've been called by all of them to compliment me on how good the chili tasted the next day! And it made awesome chili burritos, chili dogs, and chili omelets!

Real chili does not have lots of ingredients. Meat, chiles, and beer are the key ingredients. All the other ingredients are superfluous.
Great recipe! I substituted 1 lb of extra lean ground beef for white beans only because I didn't have them & I had the beef that needed to be used. I also added 1 more tbs of Chipotle pepper & 1 tsp of red pepper flakes because we LOVE spicy chili. Also ended up adding a bit of tomato paste, again due to preference - we prefer our chili thicker.. next time won't add as much water. This recipe was super DELICIOUS! Have much left over & may make one of the cornbread recipes here to accompany our lunch tomorrow! Enjoy!!
Our family just loves chili & this is a definate favourite.Made it the first time with the beef,used some pork when I made it the next time & it was fabulous.It is even better the next day.Browned the meat & all the vegetable & then combined everything in my crock pot,great dish when you want to be out & can come home & dinner is ready.Will be making this again & again.
