Meet the Cook: Doubling this recipe is automatic for me - just about everyone wants more than one bowl! If any's left, I freeze it. It's also great the second time around.

"MOM'S CHILI was the best! She knew just the right ingredients to put her 'stamp' on it. I could eat it with my eyes closed and know it was her recipe! It amazed me that she could put it together in so little time.
Green, sweet red and yellow peppers give this hearty chili a splash of color. I often fix it for my grandsons. Because they don't like spicy chili, I use mild salsa, but try it with a hotter variety if you prefer. —Richard Rundels, Waverly, Ohio
This spicy chili features traditional ingredients like ground beef, green peppers and tomatoes, but carrots and white beans, make it deliciously different. Serve it over rice for a hearty meal. - Frank Fenti, New York
