“The "new" Recipezaar has cut off about half of my directions after step 3 during the switch. sad. sorry to any new readers. Maybe I'll have time to come back and make corrections someday, though I rarely frequent this site now because of how much more difficult it is to navigate. this is a passed down, tried and true chili recipe. i always get a ton of compliments on it. serving ideas: cheese, fritos, cornbread, saltine crackers (we love them all -- depending on our mood!)... note -- this is one of those recipes that comes from my brain and test tastes. :) so a couple of notes: -- i have found that Lawry's chili seasoning gives the best overall taste. and plus, that's just the way grandma made it! -- i use any where from one to two pounds of meat and adjust the ingredients accordingly. -- i often use nearly 1 and 1/2 packets of chili seasoning, especially if the meat portion is on the heavy side. -- i often use some of the stewed tomato juice and chili bean juice to help add flavor.”
