What attracted me to this recipe was the variety of ingredients used, which I thought was unusual. I was leary about the carrots and celery, but I used my Pampered Chef Food chopper to chop them small, and it was fabulous! I made a few revisions to make a more "smoked" flavor. I used A-1 steak sauce, and Chardonnay wine. I added 3 tbsp of Hickory Smoke flavor, and 1/2 pound of bacon which made a huge difference. Most of the reviews for this recipe said it was too think so I did not use the tomato paste and I used 2 cans of Hunts fire roasted tomatoe's (keeping the juices and 2 cans of kidney beans (keeping the juices). I also added a can of Mexican corn (drained). My chili was a huge hit at a work related function.
