Both of the recipes sounded good, but I don't eat meat so the beans are important for me. I use lots of vegetables. Chopped portabella mushrooms give it a "meaty" texture (I don't like TVP either.) Would he notice if you pureed the beans and added them with some tomato juice or V8??
Best of luck. I love to cook. Last night I made pinto bean soup (lots of veggies and rice added), a great salad with almonds and feta cheese, and an apple crisp for dessert. I live alone so I only cook like that when I have friends to cook for, but I have leftovers of everything for another meal or two by myself. emoticon emoticon

2 pounds lean ground beef
1 (28 ounce )can crushed tomato
1 (29 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 large chopped onion
2 ribs chopped celery
1 large chopped green bell pepper
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

Place ground beef in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

Add the rest of the ingredients and the cooked meat to a large pot. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Top with some shredded cheddar cheese if you like.and add the jalapenos too !

finely chop darn near any vegetable, add them to the browned meat (or TVP). be sure to include healthy amounts of onion, garlic, green peppers, and tomatoes in the mix. we like corn or hominy. season with generous amounts of chili seasoning. the beans add significant fiber, but you can mimic the effect with other vegs.

I LOVE chili. Ground beef, turkey, chicken, vegetarian, what have you. My Boyfriend, however, refuses to eat beans. He was a boyscout for so many years, frequently eating nothing but canned beans on extensive camping trips, so even the smell makes him feel sick.

Any ideas for a quick or slow-cook chili with no beans?? Any other ingredient is fine!
