Like another reviewer, I omitted the tomato juice since I was using my slow cooker and I like a thicker chili. Other than that, I followed this recipe. I cooked it on low for 9 hours. The flavor was excellent, especially for such a simple recipe. I was very pleased with the results and will definitely make again. This would be an easy recipe to tweak to your personal taste. This made 4 VERY generous servings -- probably more like 5.
*****ETA: Several years later, I'm still making this chili, but I've made a couple additional changes (beside omitting the tomato juice) to make it even thicker. Now I use an extra 1/2 lb of ground beef and instead of using 15 oz of tomato sauce, I use 8 oz of tomato sauce and 6 oz of tomato paste. This chili is good the first night, but the leftovers are GREAT.
it was good but it wasn't thick
Best Ever! I made this for a football party last weekend. I was totally bummed because there wasn't any left over! I used only 1 can of beans & V8 for the tomato juice. My husband wanted it a bit spicier so next time I might try the "hot" chili seasoning. The green chili's added superb flavor, this was the best chili I ever tasted. My mother in law thought so too!
This is a yummy and easy recipe. I made it at a work potluck and everyone loved it. It tasted better the longer it stays in the crockpot.
Really good easy chili...I serve it with a dollop of sour cream and a bit of cheese..eaten with fritos is a great way with this too..yummy!
I gave this 4 stars since I tweaked it some and it wasn't the original recipe. We like a thicker chili and not TOO spicy because of the kids. Here's what I did:
1 lb. ground beef
1 can dark kidney beans (undrained)
1 can MANWICH sauce
1 pkg chili seasoning mix
Salt; pepper; garlic powder; minced onion
Brown the ground beef with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and minced onion to taste.
Layer kidney beans, ground beef, chili seasoning, and MANWICH sauce in crockpot. Give it a stir to blend all ingredients and set on LOW for about 5 hrs. (Just long enough for flavors to blend and heat through). I served it with Pillsbury Garlic Butter flavor rolls. Even my kids thought it was good and not TOO spicy!!
Yeah! I have finally found a chili recipe that is super simple to prepare, and tastes great! I followed the recipe, with a couple of minor adjustments. I used 1 1/2 lbs ground beef (instead of 2 pounds - I like a soupier chili). I used 1 can dark and 1 can light kidney beans undrained (instead of the chili beans, b/c that's what I had on hand). I didn't use the 10 oz can of tomatoes w/green chili peppers (forgot it). And used 2 packages of chili seasoning mix (instead of 1 package). This tasted great, and I will definitely make this chili again!
Very spicy, wow! The Can of Chili's made it so hot for us that we had to put it as a pasta SAUCE instead of a chili. will try it again without chili's
