Very tasty. My family asks for it all the time!

It is such a shame to waste good ground beef.... There is no such thing as "Italian Chili." Only Texas Chili!

Try Black beans instead. Other ad-ins could be mushrooms and/or corn with fresh garlic, oregano, basil, chillis and cumino.

Perhaps instead of Sodium Bomb, use fresh ingredients.

If you like this recipe, may I suggest trying any of the many variations of the old Italian standby, Pasta e Fagioli (Pasta and Beans) ?
