This is a fantastic chili! I've been making this for several years, and I have won several (at home) cooking contest. Everyone that eats it wants the recipe :)
This is the recipe I have been using for a few years. It is a must try and everyone loves it!!
I found this on another site & then noticed it here already. Tried this for superbowl & it went over very well. There were some subtle variations; can green chilies for fresh (I did one of each), regular bacon vs bits, beef broth (1/2 c) vs dry bouillon. I sub'd pork n' beans for the chili beans & some marinara for the t. sauce. I cut back the chili powder & cayenne abit but added dried red pepper flakes. There are lots of chili recipes out there... this one ranks up there near the top.
This is delish! My kids won't eat extremely spicy foods, so I cut the chili powder to 1 oz., cut the Tabasco to 1 tsp., and didn't use any cayenne at all. Despite the revisions, the chili still had a nice kick, and the flavors blended together perfectly. I'm definitely making this again---my whole family loved it.
I made this one day instead of my chili recipe just to try a different recipe and was PO'd to find out that this was BETTER. And i thought mine was good, which it is, but it's not THIS good. This is now the only chili recipe I will make. It's THE best! Thanks for sharing it!!!
I've made this chili many times. I first learned of it on allrecipes.com. If you visit the recipe on that site, you'll see how many people really enjoy this chili. It's my go-to recipe for chili!! So good.
Have made this twice, and everyone loves it. Served it warmed up to my brother/sister-in-law after three days in the fridge, and they raved. I have gotten requests form my chili recipe. Have to turn them on to the Zaar site.
Made this for a large group & the comments never stopped. Everyone loved it and couldnt get enough of it. In fact we ran out well before everyone got some. Didn't change a thing. A lot of chopping and work but WELL worth it.
