Wonderful and quite low in fat!!! We made it just the way it said(I used pork tenderloin because it was on sale and virtually fat free). I figure, if it is good like it is and that easy (I have 3 children under 5) then it is a winner in my house. I threw it all in the Crockpot within minutes and 7 hours later we were enjoying our dinner. I put 2% cheese, low fat sour cream and green onions on top. The whole family loved it.

It was alright. Just was missing something. Not sure what. My husband and I were thinking that perhaps some additional tomato would help or the addition of some kidney beans.

Yum! I left out the pork and added a can of corn and some fresh was delicious.

Only a few minor changes. I doubled the chili powder and cumin. Used one can of black and one of red kidney beans. Also used a hot salsa and added about 1/2 cup chopped celery. Very nice change from the regular chili. I'd say enough for 3 but pushing it for 4 if anyone wanted seconds.

OMG this is so good! I sauteed the onion and garlic before putting it in the slow cooker. I also used Andouille sausage instead of pork because that is what I had. I used Rotel instead of salsa and slow cooked on high for 5 hours. Perfect amount of spice. I wish I would have doubled the recipe for leftovers.

This was very good... although I didn't realize how spicy it was going to be!

This is a delicious change from your everyday chili. Try using the Bill Echols taco seasoning from this site.

I omitted the pork to make this vegetarian and it was still tasty and spicy, so I didn't feel I was giving my vegetarian less than a full meal. I served it with brown rice and she was full. Thanks
