    The chili turned out very good for a first time doing it

    the chili was delicious and very easy to throw together. I substituted a large bottle of Campbell's tomato juice for the tomato sauce it called for and I also used ground sirloin. we love flavor so I also added a pkg of chili seasoning to the spice list. I let it slow cook for 2 to 3 hours. wonderful eats after that!!

    Turned out great! Really like this recipe. Used only 1 pound of ground beef instead of two, and added a few more beans than called for, in keeping with my goal of eating a more plant-based diet. otherwise worked great and love the recipe! Thanks!

    I followed the recipe except for two things. I used Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilis instead of just diced tomatoes and skipped the jalapeño pepper. Also, I added beef base with the spices. I loved the way it turned out, but my kids found it too spicy.

    delicious! really tasty. But... as we always do in our house, spiced it up to give it a little spice. defintely add the jalapeno. not one but two. give it more cumin amd pepper too. par for,the course in our house, my wife and i always take a recipe as a base idea amd then go with it amd improv for the flavor
