"This chili was created on a snowing Carolina Day. It takes a little time but it worth the wait! We add peppers, too -- we like it hot!" — Donnak

This recipe is great and simple. Instead of cooking it on the stove top I throw everything into my slow cooker on low for the day and stir it every once and a while. It turns out great. I make it just as the recipe calls for except that I can never find chili beans so I just use 2 cans of kidney instead of 1. I make it all the time in my home and usually make extra to freeze so it's always on hand. A favourite!!!
I like my chili thick which this was but that's all it had going for it. It seriously lacked flavor...it was all spice, and we couldn't taste anything else. Neither my husband or I liked it at all.
I decided to make this recipe b/c my husband is a big Tarheel and chili fan. At first he was skeptical b/c of all the ingredients. Once he tasted the chili he was blown away. Every time I make this recipe it's great. The only thing i leave out is the mushrooms.
This was pretty good. The best chili recipe I've tried so far. I left out the mushrooms, addes some chopped bell pepper since I had some in the fridge. I only did one pound of ground beef and added two extra cans of beans (seemed healthier and tasted just fine). Also, I didn't precook the vegetables. Instead I dumped everything in the crock pot and cooked it on low all day. Turned out great. I'll definitely make this one again.
I LOVE this chili. I'm not a beer drinker, but I love the depth it adds to this dish. I make it, then refrigerate it overnight. I find it is definitely better the second day.
This is a wonderfully rich and flavorful chili. I have made it with Guinness and Newcastle and the dark beer really sets off the flavors. I also used deer meat instead of ground beef and received rave reviews!
This is by far the best chili I've ever had and definitely the best I've ever made myself. The spices are there to add flavor. That's what spices are for! The first time I made this, I doubled the recommended amount of Cayenne b/c my husband loves spicy food. However, I would recommend only the amount she recommends or even less b/c that is plenty. This is amazing chili, and I got the most compliments even if it was too spicy!
First time ever making chili and this recipe was awesome!! I used steak instead of ground beef. Also, couldn't find chili beans so I used 2 cans kidney and 1 can great northern beans. Also, used fresh mushrooms instead of from the can. Didn't have any beer on hand but tasted great anyway. Let simmer in crock pot all day long. Some of the best chili I've ever tasted.
