WOW! When I read this recipe I was more than skeptical but the raving reviews lured me in. Let me start by saying I am absolutely a chili snob. I made this today and was pleasantly surprised. I did a few things different, I browned about 1/2 lb ground beef with 2 cloves of minced harlic and added that to the pot. I also thought I had bought Ranch Dresisng mix when I actually bought Ranch Dip mix, I almost ran back out to the store but it was too late, the snow was already falling hard. I used about 3/4 of the Taco Seasoning packet and about 1/2-3/4 of the Dip packet. As i was tasting it I added slightly more taco seasoning than dip mix because I felt it tasted a little too tangy (maybe because it was dip & not dresisng), I also added about 2 tspn of chili powder and a pinch or 2 of crushed red pepper flakes. It was quick, simple and surprisingly good. My husband even loved and he is a BIG fan of my usual chili, he ate his with some totilla chips and mine was plain. Also, I didn't realize until we were done eating that I totally forgot to add the onion. I will definitely make this again - with the onion and with dressing mix instead of dip mix to see if there is a difference between the two.
