    Really, really good and very easy to make. I will be adding it to my favorites. I was out of chili powder, but found a recipe on line to make my own (2 Tbs paprika, 1/2 Tbs cumin, 1/2 Tbs garlic powder, 1 Tsp onion powder, 1 Tsp oregano, 3/4 Tsp cayenne powder). I used smoked paprika and it gave a wonderful smoky flavor to the chili. It made enough for the 3 Tbs of chili powder called for in the recipe. I omitted the cumin and oregano called for in the recipe since I had used them for the chili powder. I also used a little Cajun spice and some ground black pepper to season the ground beef. I simmered it longer than 20 minutes and it thickened up nicely. Served with Fritos, corn bread, shredded cheddar cheese; unfortunately I didn’t have any sour cream. I’m tossing all my other chili recipes!

    I modified with more garlic to taste, a heavy hand with seasonings, used the entire can of tomato paste added roasted corn and used pork sausage instead of beef. The family loved it with a side of classic cast iron bake cornbread.

    It is delicious I added 2 jalapeños and Mexican pintos instead of red kidney beans. I also used ancho chili powder 1T, green Chili Powder 1T, and red chili powder 1T instead of 3 Tablespoons of just red chilies.

    This turned out DELISH!!! I love chili and best of all the consistency was perfect. I like a thicker chili and since I didn’t have the diced tomatoes I used an additional can of the crushed. Perfect!! I will make again!
