Awesome chili recipe - DH would eat this every night! I make it in the slow cooker & it works just fine (I cook & drain the beef first, but that's it). I've made this many times for groups, and it always disappears. It's a great all-around not-too-spicy but not-too-bland chili. If you want more heat, add some cayenne pepper or some diced pickled jalapenos. Or just use hot salsa and hot taco sauce. I've done several substitutions with this recipe and it's turned out well as well. I've subbed several different kinds of beans, I've subbed a can of green chiles for the red pepper, and I've subbed tomato sauce for the spaghetti sauce. All have turned out great.

For years my mother has made the same old chili. After I made this chili for her, she wanted the recipe and says she'll never go back to her old recipe! Spicy and easy to make!!
