This chili definitely delivers! It is the perfect texture and the perfect blend of sweet and spicy! Made just as is and enjoyed bowl after bowl. I found myself looking forward to getting hungry again just so I could eat another bowl!

Tried to recipe. I really like it, and so do my coworkers (well, maybe because I am their boss). I like the fact this is a sweet approach to chili. However I only used 1/2 syrup. I also love to kick but will definitely add more jalapeno peppers next time.

I made some adjustments to this recipe, but nothing so drastic as to change the integrity of the recipe. First I cut the recipe in half for a 2-person household. Had a can of chili beans instead of kidney beans; used a can of tomatoes with chilis; yellow pepper instead of red. After noting the amount of maple syrup to be added, I knew it would not go over well at our house, no one cares for a sweet soup, so I only used 1/4 cup of syrup. For our personal taste, I had to add a good amount of chili powder and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to compensate for the sweet.

Very good chili. I can't handle much heat, so I used poblano peppers instead of jalapeno and halved the chili powder and it was perfect for me. I also only used 2 lbs of ground beef to save $ and it was more than enough meat.

I have been using this recipe for 2 years now and it is still a huge hit at my house! My husband LOVES this chilli and I have also made it for my mom and stepdad who were also fans. I omit the peppers (but that is just my personal taste). I think the maple syrup is the secret awesome ingredient in this chili. I will never make another chili again. This is by far my favorite and you wont be sorry trying it. Thanks for the great recipe :)

Definitely needs some editing. Beans have no places in chili, and that is way too much maple syrup (and that's a Vermonter's opinion). Add a bit yes, but not that much...
