"Chili from a man's point of view. Not for the faint-hearted. May modify Salsa heat and pepper to taste buds. I have to accommodate the females in my family. Serve with Italian bread." — SPENCE

My family thought it was good.
I think men should not be so pig-headed as to think women can't handle hot chili. I've made chili hot enough to burn the hair off your lumpy head. This recipe is mild in comparision.
My dad loves HOT chili and is quite the expert, so I gave him this recipe. Sorry, but he was not at all impressed. Tasted like a basic chili to him, of course this is the guy who puts Habaneros in his chili and it is so hot just the smell of it clears your sinuses.
I tried this recipe because of the description. I find most chilis to be too bland for me, and he claimed to have a strong chili here. I was extremely disappointed. I added extra chili powder and cayenne, and it was still too bland. I also cut the beans in half, and there were still too many for our taste. Overall, there was just something off about the taste - I'm not sure if it was the sugar or the Italian-style seasonings, but it wasn't quite right.
I expected more. It's really just an average chili recipe. Not worth the effort. I could get the same thing out of a can and no one would know the difference.
My toddler and five year old son loved this. I gave it two stars because all the adults thought it was bland. I will keep this recipe for a 'kid friendly' chili.
Not all that hot and no real 'chili' flavor. The jar of sauce detracts from the taste in my opinion. Sorry, just not really even chili to me.
I did not care for this recipe.
