This chili is awesome. I don't let it simmer for the entire time required, but I've had nothing but great reviews!

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

This was delicious and very easy. Made it with ground turkey instead of beef. It tasted even better the next day. Will definitely make this again.

My family loves this chili. I have made it several times and it is always a hit. I like a little less meat so I only do 3/4 lb of ground beef and then add an extra can of beans (I do one can red, one can pinto). This is super easy to make.

Made this for the first time and I was definitely impressed! It had a lot of flavor and was super easy and quick for chili. It was very thick so I added about 3/4 cup of water and about a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce for taste. Will absolutely make this again. Would be a great meal in the crockpot for a large gathering.

I adapted this for the crock pot and fed 21 people with one large pot of this and one small pot of spicy. Everyone loved it and there weren’t many leftovers!

I was a little worried it wouldn’t have enough liquid but those tomatoes loosened everything up. The spice wasn’t noticeable enough so I added some chipotle sauce and that made the dish!!!

Simple and tasty. I was a little heavy on measuring my spices and it came out well seasoned.

I had my doubts when i saw how quick this chili was, but man was it delicious!! Even my husband [Who is very critical of new recipes] LOVED it. Will make again!

Excellent chili! Since I have Chimayo Chile powder on hand, it was a perfect recipe. Just for fun I added in chopped hatch Chiles too!
