Tried and True Chili Recipe

After many years of trying different chili recipes, I always fall back on the one that EVERYBODY says is great! It is hard to find a recipe that fits all ages... not too spicy, not too runny, not too thick,etc... This one meets everyone's approval!

I got this recipe from my dear friend, Jill, about 4 years ago. She said that she had copied it down years before that out of Southern Living magazine. If your feeling like making some "comfort" food this weekend, give this one a try!

4 1/2 lbs. ground chuck
2 (1 3/4 oz) envelopes French's Chili Mix
3 (16 oz) cans Chili Hot Beans
3 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

*Brown beef in a dutch oven (big pot) and drain. Stir in chili mix and next 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.
