"This chili is just right for the bold and the timid. It has some heat, but not too much for everyone to enjoy."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

A winner. The list of ingredients was intimidating but we put it together and simmered it down to a very nice meal. Cutting the portion to 9 created almost a full gallon. More actual flavor than simple chili.
Awesome chili, even better left over
This chili is absolutely fabulous!! Wouldn't change a thing! What else you got to offer us?
Very good! I cut the recipe down to 4 servings and because of this I only needed one can of beans so I went with the classic kidneys. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars from me is that there were too many pots/skillets and it tasted like it was missing something. Instead of all the dirty pans, I cooked the bacon in a dutch oven then put it aside, then put the ground turkey (I don't usually eat beef) in the same dutch oven. When it was almost cooked, I added the onion/celery/peppers. Then completed step 2, and moved on to adding the beans and seasonings. This seemed so much simpler! The missing ingredient that really rounded out the flavors was tomato paste. Will absolutely make this again, following my simple tweaks and adding the tomato paste. Hubby loved it!
Really good chili! I used green chiles in the chili and subbed grape juice and red wine vinegar for the wine. I changed the servings from 25 to 12 but still used a pound of bacon. This recipe doesn't need measured, just dump it all in and it will be great. The kids and everyone else ate it up.
This had a wonderful robust flavor. I only left out the brown sugar. Oh, and added extra garlic :)
Great Chili. I too was a little afraid of all the ingredients. I had to buy several of them. But it was a great bowl of chili. We make again. Going to freeze some and see how to taste later.
This is a terrific chili....made a day ahead. I made it in advance yesterday and I didn't think much of it then. Fast forward today.....YUMMY! My only change was to not overdo the prep. Brown the bacon, browned the meat and then cooked the chopped vegis in a lttle of the reserved fat. Added all the seasonings, liquids and beans and it made it so much easier. Thanks so much for sharing!
