Tips: This is my chili recipe that I modified from a few other recipes I found. It is one of our family favorites. The flavor is a medium spiciness. If your family doesn't like spicy, try using a mild chili seasoning mix and cut out the chili powder. If you like it hot, use a hot chili seasoning mix and add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. Try this with Easy Corn Bread or Yogurt Cornbread. I also shared this recipe at Our Krazy Kitchen & Somewhat Simple's Strut Your Stuff Thursday.

I forgot to start it soon enough and just made it on the stove without the water - it was great and my kids loved it - though I had to call it Taco Soup so they'd try it!
