Yummmmmmm....I think this is the best chili I have ever made, and I make chili A LOT. I usually don't mess with recipes, since I am not that adventurous a cook, but this time I had to because I was short on time and ingredients. But I feel confident reviewing the recipe since I don't think my changes altered the outcome that much.
I followed the recipe as closely as I could, but I only had an 8 oz can of tomato sauce so it came out a bit thin. I threw in what I had on hand: some Emiril gaaaaarlic tomato sauce and an 8 oz can of tomato paste to thicken it up. I didnt have enough red beans at home so I substituted on can of white northern beans for the ranch beans. Also, I browned the meat and then dumped all the ingredients in a slow cooker for 4 hours. I wouldn't normally do this, since the cook time is so quick, but we had a crazy afternoon and I didn't want to worry about dinner. I served it over bowtie pasta to give it some "oomph", and we were happy campers. The kids and I agreed that this will be our new "go-to" recipe. Thanks so much!!
