Great chili recipe! I’ve been using it for about 8 years now. In response to the person who said it was more like soup than chili - you didn’t cook it long enough, or possibly you cooked it at too low of heat.
In addition to the ingredients listed, I use more beans (at least one 15 oz can each kidney beans, pinto beans, and chili beans, sometimes two of each), and I also add red and green bell peppers, 4-5 jalapeños, and 1/2 - 1 habanero. I do sometimes add granulated garlic as well if I want it more garlicky.
Don’t get me wrong, the recipe is great as listed, but even better with a handful of changes. If you really want to change it up, you can replace half the chili powder with chipotle, and add molasses to taste (the chipotle tastes best with a touch of sweet)
This is an adequate chile recipe, but not great. If I were to make it again, I would leave out the beer altogether, use 1/2 the amount of beef broth and 2/3 the amount of tomato sauce. Turned out to be more soup than chile. There are much better recipes available.Read More
Great chili except for the beans leave them out.Read More
I added 1 can of Rotel. It was great. Saving this one.Read More
liked this recipe! I used 1 lb. ground beef and 12 oz. Boca crumbles to keep the fat and calories down. Husband didn't notice the difference! Chili has a nice consistency to it. Will make again. Just enough flavor.Read More
This is the BEST chili I have ever had! My husband came across this recipe & we liked it so much, he had to make a triple batch 3 days later! Everyone who tries it loves it! He made a couple of changes. He didn't use cumin or the green chiles, and added a chopped green pepper and a 15 oz. can of stewed tomatoes. Also, he used red kidney beans in place of the pinto beans. I'm not sure, but he may have added a couple dashes of sugar also. You will LOVE it!!Read More
Family raved about this one and is busy thinking up everything it will be good over. Not too thick or tomatoey. Added 2 chiptole peppers chopped fine as we like our chili kicked up a notch.Read More
I have been looking for a good, classic, simple chili recipe! This fit the bill. It was simple to make and my family LOVED it! Made "northern style" corn bread to go along with it. YUM! YUM! I substituted Worthington Veggie Burger in place of beef and Swanson's Vegetable Broth in place of the beef broth and dark beer. Also added on can of chopped tomatoes (drained).Read More
This chili is tangy, spicy, rich in texture and deep in flavor. I substituted ground turky for the beef. My husband raved and said it is now his favorite chili. Will add this to my recipe collection.Read More
