This chili may be simple, but the flavor is outstanding. One of the best things about preparing chili is that you can adjust it to suit your family's tastes. I sometimes substitute ground turkey for the beef.
Cooking is one of my most enjoyable activities. This recipe came from trial and error, and now it's a family favorite. My husband loves taking the leftovers to work for lunch, and his co-workers always want him to share.
To devise this recipe, I just experimented with ingredients I had on hand—and was delighted with the results! It can easily be doubled to serve more people. And except for the wonderful taste, the best part is that it's a "meal in a spud"...you don't even need a side dish!—Nadine Behrend, Everett, Washington
"Having the seasonings mixed up in advance makes stirring up a batch of chili a breeze," suggests Mary Henderson of Opelika, Alabama. "It's a bold but pleasant blend. I like the round steak and ground beef combination."
From Bernice MOrris of Marshfield, Missouri comes a full-flavored chili seasoning that'll heat up your holiday gift-giving. The mix is on the mild side, which is nice for those who aren't partial to extra-spicy food. (To raise the "temperature", just add more chili powder!)
