This chili with beans and meat recipe is a favorite in our house, and can be seasoned to taste to create a mildly flavored dish or one that is extra hot for those who enjoy some additional spice. As is, this chili is not too spicy but has just enough kick and the ingredients that go into it, give it teriffic depth of flavor.
slstoller ,Great flavor - I added a can of cannellini beans as well. My husband and son loved it!
billz09 ,After freezing a batch of this chili and tasting it later, I've changed my mind. It is very good chili!
jason_doyon ,Excellent chili! This is the second time that I'm making it. I cut back on the cayenne to 1/4 tsp so that my 2 year old son can enjoy some.
jclong13 ,This came out perfectly. Great texture and flavor. I used vegetarian "meat" crumbles instead if beef, and I didn't miss it.
poodleboy ,Came out a but spicy for my sons, but quite delicious! Of course, I added 5 spicy Itslian sausage to the ground beef and an extra can of crushed tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe!!
spike50 ,This was surprisingly good. Like the flavor and the consistency. Family liked it, so that's important. Allows for easy changes such as more beans or pepper for additional heat.
samag93 ,Amazing! We love spicy, so I threw in some ghost pepper seasoning and sriracha. Very good chili!
capistran ,I tried this recipe for our Halloween block party, and everyone loved it. I will be cooking this at our Firehouse next.
janettes ,A very nice chili. Nice consistency and perfect portion of beef to bean (not too many). This is delicious and will be my staple recipe!
senseiheidi ,This is my new favorite chili recipe. Perfect level of spice for our children and not too many beans. As promised, the flavor was improved the next day (although it was very good when fresh).
janettes ,Excellent recipe. Will have this as a favorite. Only mods were to add a couple of stalks of celery (diced) and 1/2 pkt of prepared chili seasoning with the spices in this recipe (for 4 servings). We prefer a spicy chili.
gwoods87 ,My wife said "I'm not as big of a fan of chili as you and I could eat this every week. This is the best chili I've ever had." And I have to agree!
