Though this recipe is indeed "easy," it is not as flavorful as many other chili recipes I have had, some of which are available at the allrecipes website. It was fine, just not as memorable as o...

I love this chili! I like it thicker and add two cans of tomatoes instead of one, two cans of chili beans and two cans of kidney beans. I do not adjust anything else and it turns out great!

Great chili! Try browning the meat in Guiness, it really brings out the flavor in the meat.

Ahh, finally! I never could get the ingredients correct when doing chili on my own w/out a package. I left out the jalapenos for the kids sakes. I added 3 TBS chili powder, 3 cloves of garlic...

I've never made chili before, and searched tons of recipes. Found this one, and SO GLAD I DID. I did end up adding more chili powder, but that was the only change. I loved that is was spicy, but...

This chili was very tasty and easy, but not as spicy as I expected it to be. After browning the meat, onion, & peppers, I transferred to a slow cooker, added the rest of the ingredients, and co...

I have made this Chili once and it was very good! It freezes well! This week I was ill and my children defrosted a freezer bag of this chili for dinner and a neighbor came over to see how I was ...
