Great Recipe !!!
Made some modifications to "kick it up a notch". I added 6 oz. of tomato paste instead of 2 tablespoons, Added 3/4 cup of Worcestershire Sauce. In addition to the 2 tablespoons of chili power I added 1 envelop of Chili Seasoning. "Man -O - Man Was It Good". My family and Iloved it. I will be making MVP Chili from now on throughoutthe winter and as we watch our favorite sports teams !!!!!!!

Chili Snob here > fail
Made a tomato based pasta sauce with italian sausage and only half of the family cared for it, so I decided to use the leftover sauce to make chili. I'm happy to have found this recipe, I just added the missing ingredients. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned and since I used mild johnsonville sausage I adjusted the seasonings so added a bit more chili and cumin as well.
It was great but i added Minced Meat
Had to change a little bit- added the packet of chili seasoning, went ahead and threw the whole can of tomato paste in, and other than that, added cayenne pepper to spruce it up a bit more. It's a decent quick chili!
What a great recipe-I used light beer since it's all I had on hand, and it was really good. No black beans for us, so omitted them, but the sausage really added a new and different taste to the usual chili we have. I also loved the addition of the corn.
I cooked this Chili tonight with a few changes. I added sugar, cinnamon, yellow curry, and ginger. Omitted black pepper and used sea salt. It was very delish. I also used turkey ground meat and one link of beef sausage.
I can only give this a 4 because while this is my basic go to chili recipe I do thinks a tiny bit different. I use 1 pkg hot and one pkg mild sausage, I saute 1 finely chopped carrot and 1 finely chopped stalk celery (figure I have to sneak in all the veggies I can), I used diced tomatoes, 1 can plain and 1 can with chilies, and always add a lot of fresh ground pepper. I bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and let it go for up to 2 hours. If i have time, make a day ahead, because always better the second day.
