This was so good everyone liked it. When I read how much chilli powder I questioned it, but did it just as the recipe said. It is great the next day just not enough left over.

This is a great chili recipe. My husband and his friends ate the entire pot. The kids loved it too. I actually had to make this recipe twice in the same week. Thanks for posting!

I’ve made the original recipe for America’s Test Kitchen multiple times. We all like it a lot. I can’t tell how much you’ve modified it but it looks pretty much the same. I think I might try your version on my next camping trip in my dutch oven. Thanks!

This is really good chili! When I first read the ingrediants, I wasn't so sure - I don't think I have ever used a 1/4 cup of chili powder in anything =) But it turned out really good and tasty. Not too hot and spicy. I was tired of using the prepackaged seasoning and this recipe tastes so much better. Thanks!

I served this chili to our church during our Wednesday night supper (about 75 people) and received rave reviews.

DELICIOUS! I made a few small modifications - I used ground turkey, a green bell pepper, and left out the red pepper flakes because I didn't have any. I also used 2 small (6 oz. cans I think) of tomato paste and 2 small cans of water in place of the puree since I didn't have any of that in the cupboard. We topped it with mozzarella cheese and some yogurt instead of sour cream. It was easy to make and sooo yummy and filling. I think this is something you can make to be more or less spicy depending on your taste preference. The way I made it (basically following the recipe, besides leaving the red pepper flakes out), I thought it was very flavorful but not too (spicy) hot or overpowering. Thanks so much for sharing!!

Love the intense flavor and right amount of heat. Easy to make. I used 1/2 a lb of ground beef and adjusted the other measurements and made plenty for two with lots left over.

Easy to make if you have the time. I added Sriracha to make it even spicier!

Great stew! I used 2 lbs. stew beef browned it first added it to a crock pot. Then I sauteed onions and pepper and 3 cloves garlic. Added that to the crockpot along with the rest of the ingredients. Cooked on high 1 hour then low 3, maybe 4 more hours.
