Wow! I made this chili for a chili feed and it turned out great! I tweaked it a little bit but the flavor was amazing! Definitely will be making it again, and recommend to others. It was judged 4th out of 30 different recipes!
I found this chili to have way to much tomato taste, not enough of the other flavors. I wll try it again, but will probably cut out the tomato sauce totally, I will also reduce the salt. The only change I made in the recipe was to use rotel tomatoes instead of fresh jalapeno, didn't have any. I was also out of paprika and only used 1 oz of chocolate. I dont' think those changes made a big deal.
This recipe is really good! I wanted to respond to JanKrzyz whom reviewed this chili that that's great you love the chili recipe! Though, if it's really good like you say you should give it at least 4 stars or 5 stars, because browsing recipe-seekers will see that you only gave it one star and think the recipe is terrible (since you're the only reviewer so far). Just wanted to help you!
After hearing friends talk about a local chili that has sauerkraut in it and how good it was, I decided to make my own version. My girlfriend and I put this recipe together on a Sunday afternoon and it turned out better than expected. I can usually buy bulk beer brat sausage from a local grocery but they were out. So we got the links, removed the casings and broke them up real fine while browning instead of cutting into pieces. Going to enter this recipe in a chili cookoff in a couple weeks. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did.
This is a excellant chili recipe. Very good flavor. Made for a chili feed and can't wait to see what the other campers think about this chili. Will be making this many more time.
I took the advice of another reviewer and left out the tomato sauce and this recipe still turned out to be so salty and acidic that we could hardly eat it. I was so disappointed! I never get heartburn and with this it only took one bite! I love brauts and sauerkraut, but from now on I'll stick to making them on their own!
This is wonderful!! Love the kraut in it and a nice spice to it as well. Perfect :)
This turned out really well. I entered it in a small chili contest and won 2nd place! I followed directions exactly as stated.
