    Yummy, but next time I'll up the spice considerably as this had little to no heat.

    Well, I drained the tomatoes and added a bunch of extra spices including red pepper flakes. It was great. I also halved the recipe because it is just me.

    It was delicious. I added a can of tomato paste and extra spice. I did drain the kidney beans. I also cooked it for 2 hours to get a thicker consistancy.

    turned out great. i added a few extras but this foundation is great. I added celery salt, tablespoon franks red hot, one yellow pepper, an extra tsp of chili powder and a jar of basil spaghetti sauce which gives it more sauce like im used to using. Turned out really good.

    Very greasy/soupy (yes, I did drain the grease) and not very flavorful, even after adding extra chili powder and Tabasco. Using whole tomatoes undrained gives it a weird liquidy yet chunky texture. Overall, not a fan.

    Delicious! I would suggest using red beans. This has replaced my family recipe.

    I used black beans instead of kidney beans, turned out well!
    Real tasty, but added some additional Tabasco to get a little heat

    This was more like soup than chili. Chili is supposed to be thick, not soupy. The recipe called for undrained canned goods, so I didn't drain the tomatoes nor the pinto beans. It was good and had a kick to it with the spices. However, I'm going to drain the ingredients next time to see if that'll make a difference.

    My favorite chili ever. Only change I made was to add 1 chopped green pepper to it.
