Chili con Carne Recipe

At chili suppers, this one always disappears first! It's nice at home, too, since the longer it sits in the refrigerator, the better the taste seems to get. —Janie Turner, Tuttle, Oklahoma

"Oh my Goodness!! I made this chili tonight and it was off the chain. I followed the recipe just as written with one small change. At the end after adding the kidney beans, I let it simmer for another 30 minutes. After that I turned it off and let it sit for about two hours (to let all of those flavors meld together). When I came back to try it, it was off-the-charts good. This is now my go-to home-made-from-scratch chili recipe. Perfect for a cold winter day or any day for that matter. Thanks for a great recipe."

"you were doing okay until the cinnamon and lost it altogether with the beans. In Texas chili is meat and gravy. NOI BEANS. If you want to make it right ditch the hamburger and get some shredded sirloin. That is Texas Red!!,"

"This is a great recipe. I added diced jalapenos, a second can of beans and cooked it in a crock-pot. The smell and taste was amazing. Would highly recommend this recipe."

"Not my favorite chili recipe. Cinnamon was overpowering, even though it was such a small amount. I added garlic powder to the dish with the minced garlic as well."

"I love this chili Con Carne. I think this not Texas chili. Texas chili is not called Con Carne. Too bad some people don,t know the difference. I like it both ways."
