"Here's a hearty chili made with ground beef and kidney beans, cooked for hours in a slow cooker."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This is just like the chili I make only I use canned pinto beans (Bush's) and also add cumin and cayenne pepper. The ground beef is chuck which produces more grease (drained in a colander)but also much more flavor. I use a cast iron dutch oven and the "fond" made by the browned ground chuck is terrific, once the liquid goes in! Maybe Jay is a bit too finicky about his chili, jrgh17. This is good stuff.
There is some awesome recipes on here but this is not one of them. I did not care for this.
I did not care for this recipe. For one thing, this needs WAY more liquid. The juice from two cans of diced tomatoes is not nearly enough! I was quite disappointed that there was nothing to dip my bread bowl top into. :( Flavor-wise, this was "OK," but my hubs and I agree that we've had much better. Thanks anyways, jrgh17.
This is just like a recipe that came with a list of recipes from my slow cooker! You do need to modify though, I use 2 cans of the 28 oz Tomatoes and 3 Tbsp of the Chili Powder. I add 1 - 2 Tsp Cumin, a Tbsp of pickle juice, and a pickle. You really can go as wild or as tame as your want adding additional flavors spices etc. Great base chili recipe and it is what I have always use!
Great base for a recipe, but not enough liquid from the ingredients listed. I added a couple of teaspoons of cayenne pepper and a can of tomato sauce. Also substituted ground turkey for the beef. After that, it turned out pretty good!
This was a great base for slow-cooked chili and easy enough to modify. Once we got to the last hour in the slow-cooker we tasted it to see how things were progressing. We wound up added more of everything (salt, garlic, chili powder, pepper) plus a healthy splash of hot sauce. Topped it with shredded Gruyere. We will definitely make this again.
My very 1st review. Made this yesterday. I'm not much of a cook so, slow cookers are a GOOD thing. Turned out pretty good. I did add a couple of things not in the original recipe, ie: 1 stalk of celery (chopped coarse) and a small can of tomato sauce as other reviewers stated it might not have enough liquid and just a touch of cayenne. All in all, I enjoyed it, although it doesn't make 10 servings.
I never liked chili much before trying this recipe but it has become a household favorite. My husband has even admitted it's better than his mother's! We enjoy it with cornbread or cheddar bay biscuits.
