Fast and easy to make my family loved it

Love this chili! The first time I made it for my family they just about licked the pot! Now I have to double the recipe!

Wow wow WOW!! I've made chili for years but this recipe knocked my socks off! Truly stellar flavor..just the right seasonings. Great as it is, but I like to dump it over fries & smother them with cheese & sour cream for KILLER chili cheese fries on Game Days!

This is the best chili ever, even my kids say so and I agree! This has been my go to recipe whenever we want a stick to your ribs meal that doesn't take hours to make. A fast and flavor packed one-dish that everyone has seconds of!

In a word, FANTASTIC. Although it says 6 servings, myself, my partner and two guests left no leftovers! I didn't make rice, just served up with corn & flour tortillas, shredded cheese at the table. A very big plus was that it took minutes to assemble & set simmering. TY!

Wunderbar! This chili is PERFECT! Just the right amount of heat & spice. Pretty quick too as chilis go. I never drain canned beans, since I like my chilis soupy with rice, and it sure thickened right up after cooling a little!

I have to say i love this chili ever since my girl made it for me. I even request it for my birthday dinner..it's that good. I'm from Illinois and I never heard of eating chili with rice before this, now I can't stop eating it rofl
