Loved it! I made a few changes based on personal pref. I used only 1/2 lb. Italian sausage to try and cut a bit of fat. Used only 1 can of diced tomatoes and subbed a can of tomato sauce for the other. My kids prefer more sauce and less chunks of tomatoes. I used one can of kidney beans in place of one of the cans of chili beans to just add some texture and color. Omitted the celery, red bell pepper, chile peppers, bacon bits and tobasco (sorry we are wimps). Reduced the chili powder to 2 Tbsp. (holy cow 1/4 cup is A LOT!). With these changes everyone at my table loved it. I served it with shredded cheese, chopped green onion, chopped tomato, sour cream, and tortilla chips. I think the leftovers will make great nachos. Important note - with my mods it fit perfectly in my dutch oven which is what I always use to make chili. If you make it as written be sure to use a stock pot as directed or it will never fit. It will make a very large amount.
