Three cheers Peter! We loved this but I did make a few changes: First, I halved the recipe. Second, while browning the onions/garlic/beef, I added a good dash of all-season salt. Then, when it came time to add the beans/tomatoes, I omitted the kidney beans (none available) BUT I added a 15oz can of tomato sauce, and a couple good shakes of paprika and cumin. Once you let this simmer - it thickens nicely and the flavors are GREAT! We didn't serve over rice b/c we thought it was great w/out it BUT we did sprinkle some sharp cheddar cheese over our bowls to melt. Great recipe and with the small changes I made - I will definately make this again...esspecially at our cabin this fall! Good & hearty! Thanks!
It is ok. I have had better. Granted I changed the recipe a little. I didn't put in as much onion, cause I thought that three onions sounded like a lot. And I cut back on the chili powder as well, knowing that my 4 year old would probably want to try it at some point.
Added some seasonings for personal preference and stopped short of adding the rice. Good flavor.
I love this recipe - simple, and versatile: witness the variations mentioned in various reviews here. It produces a rich and thick chili, with just the right flavor that you can spice up - or not - according to your taste. For me, it's great as is. It's also great when I decide to spice it up and make it hot with some hot sauce and hot pepper flakes. It's a great treat that can be adapted to anyone's taste. Bravo! I love it and encourage everyone to try it!
I have made this three times now at home in my crock pot and boy is it a favorite to everyone. It is easy to prepare and make and it tastes great too. Great recipe. I recommend it highly.
I thought this was pretty good. I didn't have any pork and beans, so I added baked beans instead. I liked the taste, but my husband didn't.
I happened to have some pork and beans around the house and didn't know what to do with them because they don't taste that great out of the can. So I followed this recipe and made chili for the first time. It was so good! The only downside is that the recipe produces a bland chili, so I added extra red pepper powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon, and paprika.
Wasn't well liked by our family. The baked beans were too sweet.
