The Ultimate Chili Recipe
Combine browned ground beef, tomatoes and kidney beans in a slow cooker in this chili seasoned with chili powder, cumin, basil and Worcestershire sauce.
Very good chili! I used ground turkey rather than beef, 2 cans of kidney beans and reduced the rest of the ingredients by half. I too noticed the chili to be a bit "liquidy" so I added an equal amount of cornstarch to the red wine, which was chilled, to thicken it a bit. I also added 4 dehydrated asian thai hot peppers for a spicier chili. The chili turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!
This was very good. I only used 2 cans of Mrs. Grime's Chili Beans as we don't like that many beans in our chili. This had a nice, well-rounded flavor and the correct consistancy for soup. Thanks for a great recipe, Wendy.
I have been using this chili recipe for a year now, and it's been accidentally tweaked (I was too lazy to write this down and my printer was out of ink and I lost the original copy I had printed) I never use as much vinegar as the recipe calls for anymore (2 tablespoons is plenty) and I add more than a dash of worcestershire. Also, I never addedthe red wine since I havent found one I like cooking with that isnt expensive. When I brown the beef, I usually use up whatever onion and garlic I have left in my fridge and I have omitted the celery and bell pepper before (I have also added more than the recipe calls for the empty out my fridge) All in all, this is a great recipe, and especially good when it's been sitting in the fridge a day or two.
Not bad - a little bland though. I will keep looking for a spicier, tastier recipe for chili.
Good basic recipie.
