Re: do you have a good home made chili recipe

This is the recipe I use-- it's supposed to be a Wendy's knock-off. Everyone always loves it.
I cut down on the meat and use more beans (kidney and black). You could omit the green peppers and cayenne.

2 lbs. fresh ground beef
1 qt. tomato juice (I just use tomato paste and water)
1 (29 oz.) can tomato puree
1 (15 oz.) can red beans, drained
1 medium onion (1 1/2 c.), chopped
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp. cumin (if you like real flavor, add more)
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

In a frying pan, brown the ground beef; drain. Put the drained beef and the remaining ingredients into a 6-quart pot. Cover the pot; let it simmer for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
