Best Chili Ever! The only thing I changed was I use dry onion soup mix and 2 pounds of beef. About 3 cans of chili beans too. Other than upping quantity, this is forever going to be mine and my family's favorite! Thanks for sharing!

This was a really wonderful and easy recipe. I made a couple changes - I used ground turkey instead of beef and used one onion and a cup of water in place of the soup (couldn't find onion soup at the grocery store). This is my go-to chili recipe!

This was OK for us. The onion soup really gave it a different taste. I followed the recipe exactly as written except I only used one tablespoon of chili powder because I don't like things too spicy.
