Best No-Bean Chili

Bob

"Perfect for people who love using their slow cookers. I've tried many chili recipes but this one is the best ever! You can substitute beans for the cornmeal, but I think it takes away from the taste and the smooth texture. I recommend opening a second bottle of porter beer and drink it while cooking this tasty dish! Yum!"

Will be trying this recipe. Was wondering if 2 oz. of extra lean ground beef is right.

Most helpful critical review

Folled the recipe exactly with one exception. Reduced the sugar to 3 Tbs and it was still way to sweet for my taste. Not enough true chili taste to suit me.
