sounds like basic bland midwest chili that is served in cafeterias. Way to much tomato, swap some out for beef stock, and add a chopped serrano or other hot chili of choice. For 2 pounds of meat my chili recipe uses 1/4 cup of chili powder plus 1-3 tablespoons of my homemade chili powder which is on the hot end of the scale.

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 pounds beef chuck -- chopped in 1/4 inch pieces
30 ounces beef stock -- enough to cover the meat, may need 3 cans(I use homemade)
8 ounces tomato sauce -- 8 ounce
15 ounces diced tomato -- 28 ounce
1 tablespoon salt
1 medium onion -- coarsely chopped
4 teaspoons bacon grease
1/4 cup chili powder -- mild
3 tablespoons chili powder; hot -- hot, I use my own blend. To taste, might try 1 tablespoon to start
2 cloves garlic -- chopped fine

Fry meat seasoned with the salt in the bacon grease until browned. Add the onion and garlic and cook until soft.

Add 2 cans of beef stock and simmer for 1 hour or until meat starts to get tender.

Add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and the mild chili powder. Simmer for 45 minutes.

Add the hot chili powder, simmer another 30 to 45 minutes.

Serve with crackers, sour cream and cheese if desired.

Beans are optional, drain and add during the last 10 minutes of the cook.

I love good chili. For years I've made it with everything from venison to tri tip to brisket, and most of it was pretty good. I would usually start with Wick Fowler's kit, and do a lot of personalizing. I just ordered a bunch of Pendery's Chile Blends for Chrismas gifts. It's used in a lot of chili cookoffs. You owe it to yourself to give it a try. It is really quite good.
