My Homemade Chili Southern Style- I've never actually measured the ingredients- 2-3 lbs. lean beef 2 cans stewed tomatoes 1 can tomato sauce 1/4 cup ketchup 1 large chopped onion 2 cans pinto beans (strained & rinsed) chili powder cumin salt & pepper cayenne pepper paprika I always boil my hamburger to clean it from most of the fat. Then I toss it in a colander strainer, rinse. Then place in a pot or large pan and add olive oil, onions, peppers, salt & pepper. Brown the hamburger then add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, pinto beans, ketchup, 3-4 cups of water to cover and the dry seasonings to taste. Cook down on Medium for about an hour or two depending on how thick or thin you want it. Serves for bowls of chili (my kids always add cheese on top). Or thick if using for dip for the fun gathering. Enjoy!

A quick and easy chili that is tasty as well. 1 lb. ground beef 1/2 red onion, diced 1/2 green bell pepper, diced 2 small red or orange sweet peppers, diced 2 15 oz. cans organic diced fire roasted tomatoes 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes (they have a little kick to them) 2 15 oz. cans pinto beans 1 15 oz. can red kidney beans 1 packet ranch dressing mix 1 packet taco seasoning mix Spray your favorite 8 to 10 qt stock pot with a coating of non-stick spray. Cook the vegies until they start to get soft. Add the beef, cooking until it starts to brown and is cooked through. To reduce fat content, drain and rinse this in hot water, careful not to lose anything. Add the tomatoes and beans (with liquid), stirring to combine. Toss in the seasoning the packets, and bring to low boil, stirring often. Add a 1/2 cup of water if needed. Simmer for 20-30 minutes and you are ready to go. A great quick, supper with tortilla chips and shredded sharp cheddar and diced onions on top.

My crockpot is my summertime HERO, really helps keep the house cool. In it, I make Green Turkey Chili, quite light but hearty. If you would like my recipe, it is posted here: http://worththewhisk.com/2009/07/01/green-turkey-chili/

There are so many good chilli recipes here I have to bookmark this page to come back for a few of them. I think I'll start with a simple one like Susan's who makes her chilli with canned beans. It will give me a good start. I've never made chilli before and was looking for an easy recipe. Thank you all for sharing.

Rick Bayless has a wonderful old school chili recipe. His calls for beef, but I've been known to use bison. No veggies, no sweeteners --but the option of beans. I usually make up a pot of borracho beans and add 'em.
