    The Giggle Box's Note:

    This recipe is based on Emeril's Chili con Carne recipe. It is my most favorite chili recipe so I thought I would share. The best thing about this recipe is that you don't use beans, but if you must have them, they can easily be added.

      Great chili! I was a little more generous with the spices, especially the chili powder. We like things hot! And my husband will like the lack of beans which I usually add to my chili. I like them, but he doesn't. Thanks for posting this recipe!

      Absolutely ouststanding! I'm Australian so of course I added beans (we couldn't imagine a chilli con carne without them!) and used Lennie's Essence recipe as you can't get this spice mix over here. I cooked this for around 1 1/2 hours to get the consistancy we like and have already made it twice. I left out the salt as it didn't need it for our tastes. Thanks so much for this excellent recipe!

      Hard to know if this is the correct rating because I made it with veggie granules, tofu, and kidney beans and didn't have Emeril's Essence. Tasted great :)
