This is a very simple and hearty chili with plenty of flavor. It's even better the second day! I serve this with lowfat Cheddar cheese and lowfat sour cream. It's also delicious with crackers.

This recipe was fantastic, though I added my own touches... Used a can of mild chili beans besides the kidneys, and mashed half of each can. Added a 4 oz. can of mild green chilies. Also diced half a green pepper and did not cook it or the onion until all the ingredients were mixed. Cut the water in half to make it thicker and heartier, and added a dash of cinnamon. We are definitely saving this recipe - it is the best we've tried so far! Edit: I've made this a second time now, this time in the slow-cooker. We did not change anything except to add a little more water. We left it on low for the day (8 hrs).

This chili is a great version of it on the healthier side! I add some assorted veggies like carrots and peppers and onions to it- 1 cup of each to make it heartier and meet my daily veggie requirements

Great recipes with these adjustments. Sauteeed chopped onion and minced garlic in olive oil. Then added ground turkey. Cooked with a montreal dry steak seasoning I use with turkey. Added in a little extra tomatoes, left out water & chili powder, added double the cumim, and two tablespoons of brown sugar. Simmered for 2 hrs (checking taste and adjusting seasonings slightly if needed) and served with shreded cheese and crackers for friends and my son. Was *gone* and had recipe requests afterwards. I so adore this site!
