Awesome chili recipe - DH would eat this every night! I make it in the slow cooker & it works just fine (I cook & drain the beef first, but that's it). I've made this many times for groups, and it always disappears. It's a great all-around not-too-spicy but not-too-bland chili. If you want more heat, add some cayenne pepper or some diced pickled jalapenos. Or just use hot salsa and hot taco sauce. I've done several substitutions with this recipe and it's turned out well as well. I've subbed several different kinds of beans, I've subbed a can of green chiles for the red pepper, and I've subbed tomato sauce for the spaghetti sauce. All have turned out great.
I made this just like the recipe said. It wasn't even close to tasting like chili. Plastic & cheap.
For years my mother has made the same old chili. After I made this chili for her, she wanted the recipe and says she'll never go back to her old recipe! Spicy and easy to make!!
Once again I entered this recipe in my companies Chili cook off and took 1st place for the 3rd year in a row. I am always asked for the recipe.
This is a great chili recipe. I had to add about 1 cup water to get the right consistency for my family. Will be using this recipe many more times in the future. Absolutely fabulous.
This chili is the perfect level of spicy for most palates if you use medium salsa and medium taco sauce. Tobasco or other seasoning can be added to individual servings for those who like it even hotter.
Great recipe. Made a few adjustments to suit my family's taste. I used ground turkey instead of ground beef and I only added 2 TBSP of chili powder rather than 3. We had my father-in-law over for dinner and I wasn't sure how spicy he liked his food. I thought it was the perfect amount. Cooked in slow cooker on high for 5 hours. Simple recipe that was delicious. Perfect dinner for a snowy night. Will definately make again.
this recipe is excellent, and almost exactly my recipe however I add a can of quebec maple beans and a slice of cooked crumbled bacon to the recipe. I use chili powder and just a teaspoon of hot chili flakes. More chili flakes can be added later if someone prefers their chili hot! I leave it in the slow cooker all day on low. It is even better the next day!
