People are adamant about their chili. Their style is the only way to make authentic chili and what the heck are you putting in there? Tomatoes? Man you are ruining that chili! Every one thinks their chili is the best and I think that's part of what makes it special. The hard core insist that chili contains only beef and chili powders but most of the chili champion recipes I've seen have tomato sauce in them so I guess there is some wiggle room in making great chili. I generally make chili with just beef but I like to mix it up with beans and diced tomatoes as well. I also frequently make a vegetarian chili that I really like. There are a lot of different ways to make chili so experiment and do what you like but please at least use chili powder and cumin.
This is my recipe loosely based on Debbie Ashman's championship chili recipe

Coarse ground ground beef with dumps one, two and three.

The temp here is in the teens so I'd probably eat that off the floor!

Need to try that ladies recipe sometime.
