Didn't have sherry so used Worcestershire sauce instead. Delicious!
Like everyone else I used a little bit of Worcestershire sauce instead of sherry. My roomates love when I make this. the Itailian stewed tomatoes make this good. If my pot was big enought I would put 4 cans of them in this.
I have made this exactly as written at least 10 times, all I can do is rave about this, excellent
This was really tasty, but I added dried, reconstituted ancho chiles. Their smoky kick complimented the cocoa nicely. Also, my tomatoes didn't have much liquid, so I added some beef broth and bourbon (hey! after all, this is football chili, right?!) Really gave the sauce an extra rich flavor.
Delicious!! Didn't have sherry also, used some Worcestershire sauce like a previous reviewer.
It was excellent. I couldn't find cream sherry at the local grocery store, so I used cooking sherry with a teaspoon of sugar to sweeten it up. I got rave reviews and even a few people asking for the recipe!! Thanks.
