My husband raved about this chili. It's definitely a keeper. To cut down on the high grease content so commonly found in chili, I used Laura's Lean Beef.

Very good. I doubled the spices and used beef stock instead of the beer. I also added 2 stalks of celery sliced and a green pepper chopped. Topped with shredded cheese and it was perfect to eat while watching the Winter Olympics!

Really good chili! I split the recipe into two pots and made one spicier by adding fresh jalapeno and red chili peppers. I also added a can of great northern beans, a can of kidney beans, celery, and frozen corn. Even after adding two extra cans of beans there was still plenty of meat. Will definitely make again!

This was ok. We ate it and liked it well enough but I was looking for a more exciting recipe than the one I currently use and this wasn't it. I made exactly as directed but with two squares of dark chocolate, 2tsp of sugar and a dash of cinnamon. I don't know what it was but it just didn't excite us and, because our usual recipe takes 30mins on the hob rather than 2hrs, it just didn't seem worthwhile time-wise either, sorry!

I wanted a bog standard, classic Chili con Carne and this didn't disappoint.

I used pork mince instead of beef and I added some bell pepper and some fresh jalapeno's.

Topped with:
-avacado & sour cream
-fresh chopped peppers (sweet and hot)
-spring onions, chopped
-tex-mex cheese, grated

Served with bakery fresh bread and light beer.

Thanks Marty for posting this 9 years ago!!!
