If you like it hot, add a 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder, add a 1/4 pack of chili seasoning, 1 can of chunky tomatoe sauce, plus 1 can of chili beans if you like beans. Don't forget to add extra meat(already cooked). You can use ground beef, ground turkey, ground chicken, whatever you prefer. If you don't want to cook, buy a large hamburger from Burger King or Mc Donald's w/o anything on it and chop it up into the sauce.

Brown a medium golden onion in oil, add a sliced or chopped bell pepper, put in 5 cloves of garlic. Soften. You can add jalapeno either fresh or canned, if you like. Add the can of chili and a can of beans-- any kind will work. Put in some herbs: cumin, oregano, basil, or whatever you like. Chili powder or cayenne are good, too. Pour in about 1/4 cup wine-- any kind, though red will be the best flavor in my opinion. Grated cheddar or whatever cheese you like with enough flavor to work with other items in the chili. You can put in up to 2 cups of grated cheese. I prefer it without cheese, but that is a matter of taste. Cook till hot and softened. To serve, chop up some tomatoes, put avocado on the side, and put on a dallop of sour cream. A squire of lime is also great!

What I would do is saute some onions and garlic until softened, maybe with some of that tomato sauce or some diced tomatoes. Then add in the canned chili and heat it all through.

I find that fresh cilantro or jalapenos also can really enhance the flavors too.

Which type chili are you using? If you are using the thick kind of grainy type, add a can of chopped small tomatoes, maybe the ones with jalapenos, Could add finely chopped pieces of bell pepper. You might also add another can of kidney beans. Stagg is kind of homemade style already.

I buy canned chili but only Hormel. Check the fat and saturated fat content on the other brands and it will shock you as compared to Hormel and it tastes just as good if not better. I always check the fat content and when I discovered this I buy Hormel even with other brands is on sale.

Fat is the best food source for your hormones to work properly. The low fat - no fat- created morbidly obese people.

I buy the Johnson Brick chili, add a can of diced tomatoes, a can of chili with or without beans and some browned hamburger or beef chunks. Tastes as good or better than home-made. You can also add extra diced onions if you like.

I found that a couple teaspoons of Thai fish sauce makes it awesome
