    This is a great recipe. I did make a few additions. I added a bit more salt and some onion powder. I also added about a cup of water to the crock pot during cooking. It got a bit dry without any liquid. Excellent meal will definately make this again.

    This is really easy and yummy. I have changed it a few times with ground turkey and adding more onions. Once I added corn. It always comes out great!!! I make it with corn bread and salad for a great winter meal. Great!

    This was absolutely delicious! I modified it a bit. I didn't not drain the meat, added more chili powder, and added a small can of GOYA tomato sauce and a teaspoon of sugar! I cannot wait to make this again!

    Tasty and easy as promised. Didn't feel like dragging out the crockpot, so I threw it all in a pot on the stove to simmer on low. Added an extra 14 oz can of diced tomatoes, red bellpepper and chopped celery. Used 3 Tablespoons of Chili Powder which gave it a nice little bite. Next time I plan to add some canned Rotel or fresh chopped Jalapenos to experiment with "the kick." Great basic recipe. Try it!

    Good basic plan. added 2 green 2 red peppers total (good color), hole onion all medium size. 1/2 can beef broth (not enough liquid for a crock pot) 1 can "red gold" DICED TOMATO&GREEN CHILIES 10 oz size. 1 sugar cube (just to cut heat) also 1 can tomato paste to thicken some. used 85% lean ground beef. My fussy eaters loved it OMG! THINK IT WAS WASHING THE BEANS THAT HELPED. noticed it right off on the taste. Cant wait for the wife to try it, she always says my chile su_ks. . this produced a thick hardy filling bowel of goodness.

    Very good recipe. I tried it the first time following this recipe exactly, and it turned out delicious. However, it is a little mild in my opinion (and in my fathers). I have another pot of this cooking right now and I have altered the recipe slightly: Instead of 1 green bell pepper, I went ahead and made it 1/2 green and 1/2 red, since the red has a little more zip. I also added 2 jalapenos and a half a cup of beer. Problem with the beer is that the chili is too liquidy, so I am leaving it uncovered for a while so it can steam off some of the moisture. But so far it looks delicious. I would recommend this recipe.

    Perfect! I modified by adding a 1/4 red wine, more chili powder, more cumin, cayenne pepper and dried red pepper flakes. (We like our chili spicy!) Instead of the green peppers, I put in a 16 oz can of black beans. It seemed like a lot to put a whole onion in there, so I put in only half of a chopped onion - add it's still plenty. Simmered on low for 1.5-2 hrs and there was no leftovers! :) I going to make a double batch next time and freeze individual servings.

    This chilli is excellent,quick,and easy. I added some fresh tomatoes,green peppers,and onions. I also added black beans,kidney beans, and pinto beans. I added some cumin as a previous review wrote and some onion powder. The family loved it they even went back for seconds and the men had thirds.

    I have made this chili recipe countless times, especially for large casual dinners and as a meal to take to families with a recent birth or death. I have always received compliments with this recipe. It is a classic feel-good chili recipe that satisfies a wide range of palates. If you think someone may want a spicier chili, just have some tabasco sauce on hand.
