What's football season without chili? In my house of three sons, 1 son in-law, and a husband, and whoever they tag along with, I find keeping them chewing keeps the noise to a minimum. So I keep on cooking during football. It also saves on the furniture and my hardwood floors... how? They like to pound their fist on the arm of my couch and chairs, and stamp their feet on the floors. Did you say *anger management?* No, I did! :)
*I used a food processor to mince all the vegetables.

This is a quick, easy, and flexible chili. You can vary the type of ground meat used, the varieties and amount of beans used, and the level of spiciness.
This is a great, sweet-tasting chili!
Fast, easy, and good chili my family likes! It is fast because the salsa is your chopped veggies. Easy because everything goes in the skillet.
A fall and winter favorite of our family.
I like "Chili 5 Ways" but can't make a large amount from scratch, so my version is "almost instant". For those that don't know, "Chili 5 Ways" consists of meat with chili flavor/sauce, beans, onions, pasta, cheese.
Puree the tomatoes in a blender or food processor. Brown the beef in the olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1 Tbsp. ground cumin, the cumin and caraway seeds, and the chopped onion.
I am eating from my pantry as much as possible. This recipe has only 1/2 pound of ground meat for 4 servings. I used ground turkey.
A great, different chili recipe!
This is a great recipe! I do leave out the Tabasco sauce, though. This feeds a large group.
My favorite winter soup!
A simple recipe that is also inexpensive to make.
Brown hamburger, onion, and garlic. Drain off fat. Add rest of the ingredients. Simmer 30-45 minutes.
Brown ground beef, garlic, salt and pepper. Drain grease and add meat to the slow cooker. Brown sausage, drain and add to slow cooker. Using the same pan, saute the onion and green pepper (add butter if needed) for 3-5 minutes (still crunchy) and then add to the crockpot.
Cut up bacon; cook slightly, then set aside. Brown ground beef. Add other ingredients, after first draining and mashing tomatoes so they will blend with rest of ingredients.

I make a huge batch of chili with no beans. I split the batch in half and add beans to one half, leaving the other half with no beans in it (don't add beans until after the chili is made). Everyone has their own favorite chili recipe, so I won't give mine.
When I make Chili, I start with 5 pounds of ground chuck, 2 (gallon) cans of red beans or kidney beans, and 2 (gallon) cans of tomatoes. Add onions and bell peppers according to your taste.

Can someone please give me a recipe for chili? Thanks.
By Joyce Lambert from Atmore, Al
I use my family chili recipe handed down four generations.
Cincinnati Chili (where my g.grandmother lived)
2 lg. cans Franco American Spaghetti
1 large cut up onion
4 cans dk red kidney beans
4 cans tomatoes (I prefer stewed)
2 lbs. ground beef (cooked and drained)
Sugar to taste
In one large kettle, add all ingredients and stir together. Cook until onions are clear.
If you use stewed tomatoes, it has bell peppers in it and that tastes extra good which is modifying the recipe to suit myself. I add sugar to taste in my own bowl as some members of family likes to add chili powder for variety in their own bowl. The leftovers are even better the next day.
This a chili recipe that my mom handed down to me and everyone loves it! What's even better is that it is so easy and the ingredients are simple:
3 cans of beans of your choice (15 oz. and you can even substitute canned corn for one of them, I prefer dark red kidney beans)
2 15oz. cans stewed tomatoes
15oz. can tomato sauce
pinch of red chili pepper (depending on how spicy you want it)
1- 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2 tbsp. chili powder (you might need to add more so do a taste test)
salt to taste
Cook hamburger and onion in deep pan. Reduce heat to simmer and drain fat. Add salt and chili powder. Add beans, stewed tomatoes, and tomato sauce and stir. Let simmer. If the sauce is too thin, I bring it to a boil and add cornstarch.
