"This is a wonderful dish for cold winter days that really fills you up! My mother used to make this for my family, and it quickly became a favorite. This isn't your normal 'hot' chili and it's a great change of pace. It's best when served with buttered saltine crackers. This chili also freezes well."

There is something special about this chili! I just made it tonight, and it might be my favorite chili recipe I've ever tried! I followed the directions almost exactly with the exception of substituting Morningstar Farms soy crumbles for the beef, and I omitted the beef bouillon to make the chili vegetarian friendly. It was so easy to make and was low maintenance once it was simmering on the stove. The potatoes added such a nice texture and flavor to it, and the pinch of nutmeg + sugar added just enough complexity to it without making it fall into a Cincinnati category of sweetness. I served it with shredded cheddar cheese and multi-seed flatbread crackers. It will become a staple recipe in my household!
Not when you're in the mood for Chili.
I just tried this recipe and I feel like something was left out - liquid. Once ingredients were drained, it turned out looking more like goulash than chili. I decided not to drain the diced tomatoes and after cooking with a lid on for an hour, it became moist and delicious! Will definitely make again.
This was very good. But, don't expect it to taste like regular chili. We ate it with sour cream and cheddar and I only wished that I had made more. The kids and hubby loved it.
We accidentally bought 1 pound of beef chuck... but not ground. We cut it up into small chunks and it was really good. I liked the texture it added. Wonderful!
This is good soup. Very very close to my grandmother's recipe. She used fresh potatoes and diced them, but otherwise its the same. They often cooked this in a dutch oven hanging over a fire when they camped. Yum!
This is fantastic, comfort chili! My family of all ages loves it, including babies and toddlers. Instead of plain canned diced tomatoes, I use Hunt's Seasoned Diced Tomato Sauce for Chili which really gives the flavor a punch. I also make an enormous batch to freeze and take out as needed, because it does defrost with out losing integrity.
tastes great with about a half or full cup of Jameson Irish Whiskey in it as well.
