Picante sauce(to taste) or when you put the tomatoes in. You can buy the kind with green chilli's in them.
Handfull of oregano
Chilli powder to taste
Cuman to taste
Apple sauce a small jar
Tomato juice for the liquid
Cooked hamburger meat well drained.
Chopped celery, onions
Canned chopped tomatoes
kidney beans.

Simmer till all the veggies are cooked. I didn't give exact amounts. This is a recipe I learned over the years that you just adjust to how much chili you want to make. Why you ask why there is apple sauce in the chili. Well that started out as a mistake when I had my last job. We had a guy in his 50's working for us. He would do most any work. But had a hard time reading. So instead of opening something else in the can for the chili. He grabs a can of apple sauce and opened it. I said Fred you just opened up apple sauce not what I asked you to. So we decided to put some in the chili see what would happen. Sort of a experiment. Mind you at the time we were making a large quanity of chili. Like 20 gallons or so. So 1 # 10 can of apple sauce went in that large batch. It made the chili taste good. Did something to all the spicey stuff to mellow out the taste. So something good came out of a accident.

When I do it at home. I use like a 6 or 8oz jar of apple sauce. My large kettle. 1-2 bunches(pkgs) of celery maybe 2-3 large onions, 2-3 cans of tomato juice,3-4 regular size cans of chopped tomatoes(with green chili's) and same of kidney beans Then maybe 2-3 pounds or so of hamburger meat. Then add chili powder,cuman to taste and maybe a tbsp or so of oregano. I just dump some from the container in that looks about that much. I adjust the tomato juice to make enough liquid to look like chili. It's not a real spicy chili but it does taste good on a cold day. I usually sprinkle grated chedder cheese and raw onion on top for garnish.
