“My husband won't eat beans but LOVES chili, so I had to come up with this variation on an old favorite. Instead, it contains lots of canned tomatoes and onion. This is great served over rice with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. Ground turkey may be substituted for ground beef.”

  1. Crumble the ground beef into a stock pot or large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook stirring frequently until beef is evenly browned. Drain off excess grease.
  2. Season with chili powder, oregano, cumin and hot sauce. Stir in the tomatoes and vinegar. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 1 hour - or longer if you have time. Stir occasionally to prevent burning on the bottom.

My husband refuses to eat beans. He loved this chili. I used worcester sauce instead of red wine vinegar the first time and liked it better.



My son's preschool has an annual "hot dogs with dad supper." The only thing left on the sign up sheet was a crock pot of chili so I thought I'd better test this out before I subjected all of those 3 and 4 year olds and their daddies. I made this for about 10 people for dinner. (to go with hot dogs) It got nothing but rave reviews from everyone--young and old. It's not spicy (which is really good for my needs) but had a lot of flavor. My husband said this is the only chili recipe he didn't feel the need to add a bunch of ketchup to. So a success indeed. It will be making its debut at the preschool in a few weeks!!



I'm kicking Hormel chili out the door! Home-made, healthy (no bugs or odds & ends to worry about down at the chili plant! ew!!) and my family really LOVED Frito-chili night. SO FAST & EASY TO MAKE!! Our daughter will be making us this for chili dogs, Frito-chili, and anything else we can think to top it with, spaghetti? We served ours in big bowls with Frito chips on bottom, then some shredded cheddar cheese, the chili, then some avacodos and onions, we were out of tomatoes so we omitted the thought for this time, the kids liked more cheese & some sour cream on top. Black beans will be there next time --on the side. VERY GOOD! Put a bowl of condiments in the center for everyone to personalize theirs!
