This really is freaking delicious! I made it for a work chili cook-off. It didn't win but got some compliments and I personally ate all the leftovers the same day! My parents liked it better than the chili they have been making for years. Its was super easy as well and I'm a lazy 25 year old who doesn't usually cook so I would recommend it!!
This was really yummy! I'm not much of a chili eater (don't like too spicy) this was perfect. I used 16 oz sauce and black beans (it was what I had) no water. Used yellow pepper (also what I had) and added some celery and a touch of beef boullion. Next time I'll double it. DH and I almost finished the pot off. Thank you again!
No wonder this is called "Award Winning" it was awesome and DH and I both loved it. It was plenty spicy for us and we like spicy. I only used 2 tablespoons of chili powder, but ours is a HOT poweder and it was great. The only change I made was to used cumin seeds instead of powder and when it was all cooked on the stove top - placed it all in the crockpot to simmer on low until dinner. Nice thick chili with a good blend of flavors -not just spicy hot. Topped wih cheese and a dollop of sour cream and served with Honey Corn bread. Made for "Help a Naked Recipe"
This was a nice tasting chili. My four-year-old, who is a very picky eater, ate it as written. The only change I made to the rest of the chili, however, was to add a little cayenne pepper and a few crushed red peppers, only because my husband and I like our chili a little more spicy. Thanks for the recipe!
