This recipe turned out horribly. Don't get me wrong I've made chili multiple other times, and when I made this one, I added all the right ingredients and followed the directions. It ended up not even looking like chili (way to soupy) and tasted like tacos without the shell. I will never be making this recipe ever again, and take it from a seasoned cooker, don't use this recipe unless you like water chili.

I love this recipie - simple and super yummers. My husband and his parents love it, I always make it for the cold seasons. Add some cornbread (homemade or otherwise) and it's irresistable. I always, however, add an extra can of pinto beans (water and all) to make it a little thinner. Thanks for sharing!! :)
