I'm looking for...

...a good chili recipe.

I usually make my chili with just beans, beef, and a package of seasoning. Since chili is by far my favorite recipe to make in the fall and winter I would like to try some new recipes because this one isn't cutting it. Maybe one with potatoes and slow cooked? Please share because I'm willing to try many recipes or end up taking something from all of them and make a new recipe. If I do make a new recipe from the ones given, I'll be sure to post it. I'm not looking for an extremely spicy recipe but a heart-warming recipe to sit down and eat on a cool Autumn day.

If you watch the Food Network you know Jamie Deen -- his chili recipe is pretty good. We eat it with Fritos to dip. Here's the link:,1977,FOOD_9936_33411,00.html

This was in that cookbook. Maybe it's good...

Wendy's Chili
1 pound ground chuck
1 15−ounce can of diced tomatoes (liquid included)
1 15−ounce can of red kidney beans (liquid drained)
1 15−ounce can of pinto beans (liquid drained)
1 8−ounce can Hunt's tomato sauce
1/2 medium white onion, diced
1 4−ounce can diced green chilies (with liquid)
2 Tablespoons chopped celery
2 Tablespoons chili powder
1/2 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup water

1. Brown the ground chuck over medium heat, breaking into small pieces with
the spatula. Add a dash of salt and pepper while cooking.

2. Empty the cooked meat into a spaghetti strainer, and rinse well under
very hot water. This removes the bulk of the fat.

3. Transfer the beef into a dutch oven, and add the remaining ingredients.
Stir together to combine thoroughly.

4. Over medium heat, bring to a simmer. Reduce the burner to low, and
continue simmering 50−60 minutes, stirring occasionally.
