I think this was a decent base recipe, but I made several changes for my family's taste preferences. I omitted the corn - we just didn't really want that sweetness in it. I'm also not a big fan of beans, so I used just one can of kidney beans instead of two. Since I did that, I increased the ground beef from 1-1/2 lbs to 2 lbs. Also, the amount of tomato sauce just did not seem to give it enough broth/sauce. So in addition to the 16 oz of tomato sauce, I added another 8 oz can, as well as half of a ready-to-eat tomato soup that I had in the cupboard. That made it about perfect. I also wanted a little more complexity to the taste than just chili powder, so I sprinkled in some salt and pepper, as well as just a bit of garlic powder.
