This is really, really tasty chili. Will make this chili from now on. I made a few changes, but what really makes this chili delicious is the fennel seed. Thank you for the recipe.

This was very nice. I made a few adjustments to amounts... after halving the recipe, I used 1 whole yellow pepper (no red), a bit more chili powder, cinnamon & cocoa, and half the pepper flakes. Also reduced the water to just 1 cup as I like my chili very thick. After cooking, I thought it could use some salt so added 1/2 tsp. This made a good weekend supper in the colder weather we are having. Thanks for the recipe!

Pretty good recipe. Used it for chili dogs and will be having left overs of chili with corn bread and chili cheese baked potatoes. I made it in my electric pressure cooker. I had the beans soaking when I left for work. Came home and put everything in the pressure cooker for 40 minutes. Upon tasting, I think the amount of red pepper was too much so will knock it down by a 1/4 tsp. next time. I also halved the recipe since there is only three of us. I substituted anise seed for the fennel because I didn't have fennel. I googled and learned that anise reads sweeter than fennel and will experiment with taking that down a notch too. Chili was still good. Hubby had three chili dogs!

This is just the type of full bodied flavorful chili that I love! I didn't have a red pepper so I used a whole yellow pepper and will probably cut down on the pepper flakes next time because even though I love it spicy, my husband does not. I also didn't have tomato paste so I used a can of tomato sauce and then hardly any water. It was really really good!

I prepared this for a chili cookoff and won!! Plus, $100. Thank you for the recipe. It was outstanding. I added 2 beef bullion cubes and a can of diced tomatoes. The cinnamon, fennel seed and cocoa made the taste very unique.

My husband is a big game hunter and I'm always looking for recipes we would both enjoy (I'm not fond of game meat as a rule) I used elk burger and elk steak cut up in small pieces and it was delicious!!! He brought it up to hunting camp this weekend and they ate it for lunch three days in a row! Yikes. Wouldn't want to be in that cabin. Thanks for the delicious recipe!
