Get out your crock pot and a couple of cans of chili without beans. We like Wolf Brand Chili here in Texas. I buy one can of "hot" and one can of "regular" and mix them together in the crock pot. I add one can of pinto beans, a can of Rotel tomatoes with green chili's, chopped onion, and any leftover cooked meat I might have, like hamburger, roast beef, or chicken, etc.
Then I put the crock pot on low and let it simmer for about 3 or 4 hours. By the time Wild Bill gets home, I have the garbage taken out so there's no cans as evidence of my subterfuge. The man actually brags to people that "...mah wife makes the best chili in Texas!" (Yes... he really does talk like that. The daughters always go to stitches when he says "Buur-rith-toe" when ordering his favorite fare at Dos Hermanos Burito Shop.)
To top off your chili, add any of the following to your bowl:
shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, chopped onions, chopped tomatoes. I also like saltine crackers and a glass of ice cold milk with mine, to cool down 'the heat' as they say down here.
