This looks like a very mild chili recipe that may appeal to those that like mild things. It could use much more chili powder, definitely needs cumin and celery, if not celery seed. Maybe some ground mustard as well. It's not bad looking, but, it needs a bit more....
This is a great recipe, whether you make it "as is" or you want to make adjustments to make it your own. Served it at a chili feed for the local hockey team and it disappeared! Did make a few adjustments though. I actually made two batches; one with ground beef and one with shredded beef (I can't stand ground meat of any kind; I've always hated the texture). For each batch I doubled the garlic, added 1 1/2 tsp of cumin, and subbed out half the regular chili powder for powdered chipotle chili pepper. That may be too hot for some people; you might want to try powdered adobo chili pepper instead. That gives you the wonderful smoky flavor without all the heat.
I made it for another family, and they loved it. Some of the kids added tabasco sauce. I added more chili powder, and next time will add more garlic. But this was great--and I didn't even have time to let it simmer. I know that it'll be even better tomorrow! Best recipe I've found. Thanks.
a little preparation but very good and make a lot
Makes the house smell so good as it simmers all day. Perfect for a cold day!
This is without a doubt an outstanding recipe! This chili has become repeat dish in my household!
Awesome. Everyone loved it.
Very pleasantly surprised by this recipe. It's hearty, and just spicy enough. Extra hotness can be added for those who want it. It filled my slow cooker to the absolute brim - I was constantly checking for overflow! I substituted a lb of sausage for a lb of the beef, and added a can of chili-seasoned pinto beans. Also added an extra teaspoon of salt.
This chili is AMAZING! So easy to make - it seemed very thick when I mixed everything together so I added about a cup of beef broth and a bottle of beer and it was perfect! It was so hearty and filling - everyone loved it!
I made this chili back in the beginning of November for a ladies get-together. Everyone went crazy over it! My husband does not care for onions, so he didn't like it all that much, but everyone else thought it was the best they'd ever had--and it was my first time making chili. It made so much that everyone brought some home to their children and spouses. Almost every person called me back to tell me how their families loved it and wanted the recipe. I plan on making it tomorrow again--it is perfect for cold weather. It isn't too spicy or too mild. This is a great recipe and an all around crowd pleaser.
I made a double recipe of this today for a big family get together tomorrow. It is so good!! I hope that there will be some in there tomorrow b/c I keep sneaking little bowls of it. Yummy!!!
this recipe is far from chili...i will never make it again. they need to change the name to spaghetti meat sauce. my advise...try a different recipe.
I made this recipe for a family party using beef and venison. Everyone told me how much they loved the chili--especially all the men! We offered toppings as well (sour cream, jalopeno, green onion...) and served w/ corn bread! I am making it again for a holiday party this week!
This chili was a cinch to make!! And, it made the house smell wonderful, not to mention it was delicious!! My husband and 4 year old son loved it, too!
