I just made some Chili, not from a recipe. Browned ground beef, added kosher salt, medley of ground peppers, onion powder. Then after the meat was browned, I added minced fresh garlic , diced roasted tomatoes, can of pinto beans heat thoroughly til hot.
In a bowl, the chili is topped with shredded extra sharp cheddar.
Edit : I just dished up another small bowl of chili, without the cheese but added a splash of Balsam vinegar infused with orange flavor. Totally different tasting chili but tasty. I like experimenting with flavors.
