I thought this recipe had a great foundation and then I played with it to suit my own tastes. I cooked everything on the stove in a huge pot. I used 1 1/3 lbs. ground chuck, 1 lb. Italian sausage and 1/3 lb. chopped bacon. I did not use bacon bits, real bacon has much better flavor. I only used one 28oz can of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of chili beans in medium sauce, 1 15oz can of diced tomatoes and green chiles, 2 jalapenos- 1 seeded, 1 not seeded, 3 cubes of beef bouillion instead of 4 and then did all the spices and veggies the recipe called for and adjusted the spiciness to suit my preference and I thought it was great. I know some people will say to follow the recipe if you're going to review it and I'm sure it's good the way it's written as well, but the fun in cooking is making it your own. Great recipe!
