Mccormick's "original" Chili Seasoning - Chili

“This recipe is from the backside of the McCormick's Original Chili Seasoning packet. My mom made this chili and it's always been my favorite. It doubles and triples easily if you're so inclined. If you're watching your fat/calories, this makes just as well w/ ultra-low fat ground beef, but we don't like it as well w/ ultra-low fat chicken or turkey. I'm pretty sensitive to heat in food, and this is not what I would consider a hot spicy chili. Makes great left overs. Freezes very well. Doubling Tips:. Double everything BUT the meat for a lower cost (less meat) alternative works well (double seasoning, beans, tomatoes). Double everything including the meat, this also works well. Tripling Tips:. For some reason, we've found that if you want to triple this recipe use caution. We end up going about 3.5 times on the tomatoes/tomato sauce to get the balance right. Suggestion would be to have the can of tomatoes ready to go and add to taste.”
