Delicious chili! I use black beans instead of red/kidney and add either a drained can or box of frozen corn. Yumm!!!

Didn't have much of a chili taste. The potatos in it were a fun, different thing to do. Love the idea of the recipe, just wasn't really for me. Thanks though!!

To make this recipe more 'kid friendly' I cut the chili powder down to only 1 1/2 T. instead of 2 1/2. Now my whole family loves it!

Very good. It's heavy on the tomato... but good. I halved the amount of onion and added a little cayenne pepper for spice. I also had to add a little more water to fully cook the potatoes, and I cooked it covered for 25 minutes, uncovered for 10.

This recipe was fantastic. I did change up the way i cooked it slightly. I followed all directions except added only 1 cup of water and after simmering the entire mixture for about 10 mins, I put it in the crock pot for 6 hours on low. Turned out wonderful.

I rated this five stars because it was so easy and quick and had good flavor. I used diced tomatoes and added the extra water. I also cut down on the chili powder for the kids sake. I really like this recipe and will make again.

Loved the great, hearty flavor and simplicity of this recipe. Maybe my chili power was not great quality because I thought it needed more spice. I added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilis and it was perfect. The potatoes and beans make it nice and hearty. I will definately made this again.

This was a very tasty chili. I made it once according to the recipe, but the flavours weren't complex enough for my taste. The second time, I added some bell peppers and cumin and substituted stock for the water. Very tasty!
