Wow, this is a great recipe (although I admit to altering without trying the original). Spent all day out in the cold, only to come in tonight to a steaming crock pot full of delicious, hot chili. Quite a treat.
Like others noted here, I used V8 juice instead of tomato, and I held back about 1 1/2 cups and replaced with 14.5 oz. S&W Cajun stewed tomatoes (nice flavors in this brand, including allspice). I also added 1/2 tsp. cocoa powder, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder and replaced 1/2 tsp. of white sugar with 1 tbsp. brown sugar.
Fed it to a group of 7, and there were raves around the table. Thanks, George.
