From BHG. A very well seasoned but not necessarily hot chili. Add cayenne or hot sauce or both if you want a hotter chili.

Great bean consistency even though I only had 3 of the 5 beans but I added plenty of extra gaaaaaahlic to make up for it. Was a little on the bland side so I added a packet of chili seasoning to final mix. Family raved about it.

My favorite chili recipe, the variety of beans definitely make it unique. Would recommend it to anyone

A great chili. I had accumulated a large amount of canned beans in my cupboard, but had no plans to use them. In an effort to clean house...I found this recipe! I added a can of corn (too much of that on hand too), and some garlic powder and 4 pks of splenda....and it's awesome! Thanks for posting!
