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.
It was ok. Followed recipe exactly. Did not remind me of chili. More like a pizza sauce in a bowl but not as red. Went well with some fritos. Probably will not be making this again.
Followed this to the letter EXCEPT used ground beef instead of sausage. It was mild, perfect for smaller kids, but excellent. Also slow cooked it for 5 hours. Finally, a purpose for corporate beer.
