Things to add to chili recipe?

AndIDontMind | Nov 6, 2009 06:07 AM

I have been using a very simple chili recipe - ground beef, taco seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, ground cumin, cheese, kidney and pinto beans, and salsa - and plan to make a pot this weekend.

I'd like to punch it up. What are some unique items I could add, and at what point in the cooking process should I add them?

I'm considering adding raw onion instead of onion powder, and maybe some chopped green pepper. Thought about some smoked paprika.

I'd love other suggestions, spices, whatever. Thanks!
