I knew instantly I wanted to make this recipe when I saw it -- we love chili over rice. This recipe was perfect for my family. It was mild and had a deep, rich tomato flavor. I used a yellow bell pepper instead of a red bell pepper. I didn't see kidney beans listed in the ingredients (I'll admit to going half-blind when I get into the kitchen) but I had a can of dark red kidney beans and a can of light red kidney beans in the pantry, so I drained, rinsed and added both to the chili.
