Awesome! This is the ONLY chili recipe I use! I've found that dry onion soup works just as well as a real onion, only you don't have to chop it! Makes life a bit easier. I cook this in the crock pot on low for 8 hours. Delicious!! Ally

This made a good soup but it did NOT taste like's missing a key spice, perhaps coriander?

My family loves this chili! It is so quick and easy to make. I omit the vegetable oil. Instead of 2 cans of of kidney beans, I use 1 can kidney beans and 1 can pinto beans with jalepano peppers. For the tomatoes I use one can diced and one can with green chilis.

This is my basic chili recipe though I have modified it with ideas found in other chili recipes. I add 1/4 teaspoon of allspice, a teaspoon of cumin and 1/2 ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate to the seasonings and I add a small can of tomato sauce along with the diced tomatoes. And I cook it all day in the crock pot. Very good and filling. You can also use browned, cubed pork or beef instead of the ground beef.

This is an excellent Chili recipe. I'm single and it makes just the correct amount for me to have at home and take for lunch at the office. Not caring much for tomatoes, I used tomato sauce.

This was a wonderful recipe. It was my first go at making chili. This was a great jumping off point for me. I ended up changing a few things to make it my own. It was absolutely tasty. I will definately be making it again! Thank you!

This recipe is a keeper. I have finally found a good thick chili recipe.

This is a great basic chili. My family likes it rather mild and this one fits the bill. It can easily be customized with added chili powder, canned chiles, etc. Or great as is. Thanks.
