Great blend of seasonings! We are a family of 6, so I basically doubled recipe. Only made a few changes: I used 4 whole green chilis, celery seed, dashes of red cayenne pepper & ground chipotle chile and omitted garlic salt since I increased garlic to 4 cloves. (Mixed reg & smoked paprika-Yum) Delicious change from my normal of just using chili powder. Definitely save this one!

This chili was the best I have ever made and my husband loved it. The directions seemed a bit off. I browned the meat after the onions and then followed along with the recipe. It seemed a bit salty for us. I didn't use any salt and would probably skip the garlic salt the next time I make it.

This was my first time to make chili from scratch and it turned out wonderful! I used 4 hot chili peppers and about 3 garlic cloves (you can never have too much garlic :>). It had just the right amount of spice and a terrific flavor. I was very excited especially since it didn't call for chili powder (doesn't agree with some of the family members). Thanks for a great chili recipe!
