This chili is so easy to make and is so good! Trust me. To make a double batch, double everything except the meat and onion. Use 1 can each of pinto and kidney beans, that is how I normally make it.

Very good, simple chili with just basic ingredients. Our family of five devoured it and needed more. I recommend doubling it as she suggests, but use all kidney beans... yum!

I doubled the recipe, but instead of 2 cans of tomato sauce, I used 1 can tomato sauce and 1 can of petite diced tomatoes. I also used 2 cans of Kidney beans instead of pintos, because that it what I had in the pantry. Delicious!
