Easy To Make Classic Spicy Chili Recipe

If you are looking for a moderate to spicy chili recipe, then you should try this one. If you like more heat in your chili, you can increase the chili powder and red cayenne pepper.

Classic Chili Recipe

2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 clove garlic, minced
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons table salt
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon red cayenne pepper
dash of cloves
2 large cans kidney beans plus juice
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons basil
4 cups tomato juice
1 can crushed tomatoes

Note: If you like it really spicy, you can increase the chili powder to 4 tablespoons.

In a large skillet, brown your lean ground beef with minced garlic and finely chopped onions until ground beef is no longer pink. Drain grease from beef and set aside. In a large stock pot, combine all of the above ingredients including the spices. Stir in the browned ground beef. Turn heat to low and simmer for approximately 45 minutes or until its done.
