Bowl of Red Chili

Texans have dubbed their chili "bowl o' red" because of their fondness for seasoning it with dried red chilies. Like the traditional Texas version, ours includes plenty of ground beef but no beans. If desired, garnish the chili with thinly sliced green onion, grated cheese, sour cream, lime wedges, pinto beans or rice.

Excellent and easy
March 17, 2015
We usually use the beef chipotle recipe, but this may be my new go-to. It was so simple to make and simple to adapt to our tastes, too. I did a whole 28 oz can of pureed tomatoes by accident; I just didn't read the recipe correctly. It was perfectly fine. I used only 2 tbs of chili powder b/c the review above said that the 1/4 was too strong... again, just fine. I seasoned again at the end of cooking (didn't need the full 6 hours; 4 worked) and added some paprika and ground cinnamon. Again, just to our taste, to give it extra flavor, but you could do anything with this. We served with chopped red onions and shredded cheese. Everyone loved it!
Pros: Yield, Quick, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again

Pretty tasty

Well, it took a while, but it was worth the effort. I think the 1/4 cup of chili pepper is a bit too much. I could not handle more than a taste the first evening. The following day I added another can of kidney beans, with the juice, and now I can eat the chilly as well. I have lived in Texas and can say I think this recipe gives an authentic Texas chili flavor. Thanks!
Pros: Easy, Adaptable
Cons: reduce the amount of chili pepper to your taste

Chili powder not chili pepper
The recipe called for chili powder and not chili wonder it was so hot. These are very different spices.
