    The best Chili I have ever made. I didn’t use an Instant Pot, made you it on the stove top. I highly recommend this recipe

    Really a solid recipe. The different type beans added flavor. I confess I added some cayenne to kick it up but other than that really good chili.

    This chili was good! I’ll probably make this again. The chili was a little on the mild side. Next time I will add a little more spice to it. Maybe jalapeño with the seeds or two. Maybe a little less salt.

    Made it just like the recipe. It is a delicious chili. I did put the jalapeño in. Not a hot chili but definitely a flavorful one with enough spice to be interesting.

    My family loves chili. This is, by far, the best recipe I have ever tried. Very tasty. Rich, flavorful base. The only change I made was cutting the amount of salt in half because 2 teaspoons seemed like a lot. Worth 5 stars!

    We’ve made this about four times already this year and it’s been excellent each time. It’s our go-to chili recipe and we LOVE it!

    Amazing! Used ground turkey instead of ground beef, all other ingredients the same.

    So this turned out absolutely awful. I probably should have used canned beans, but nowhere in the recipe does it say to use cans. I'm going to literally throw away like 5lbs of food because it's inedible.

    Great recipe. I would make this one again.

    I really liked the seasonings in this chili. I changed ground beef to shredded pork , used just the black beans and substituted v8 for the broth
