I've been making chili the same ole way for 50 years and since I decided everyday to try a new recipe, this was my first adventure. It was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Like some of the other reviewers, I don't like chili to end up tasting of too much tomato so cut back on some of the sauce and paste, but added the beer and chilis, couldn't be happier. Husband taking left overs to hunting camp next week.

I love chili with lots of beans. We thought it needed more spice, so doubled the spice and seasoning amounts and it was just right for out taste. Served with shredded cheddar on top. Thanks.

We love a few different chili recipes and even one packet that we buy but this one is one of the top 3 chili's I have ever made! Looking forward to fall and another batch although we have made it in the summer and used as a dip. Only thin I have ever changed is dropping the beer and adding a can of rotel.

Wonderful flavor and timings. I did a half batch and it worked out well. I've made this a few times now and usually just alter the spices to whoever I'm serving. This time I added 2 stalks of celery. I think that was the right choice. Hubby says to continue adding celery, too. So if its on hand, it'll now be my extra ingredient.

I made this for a family supper and my 3 teenagers *inhaled* it. I was lucky to get a bowl! I added a cup of frozen corn and 1 fresh chopped green pepper. When I bought my ingredients, I looked at the recipe wrong and bought two 7 oz cans of chopped green chilies and plain diced tomatoes, instead of diced tomatoes with green chilies. It's delicious topped with shredded sharp cheddar cheese and crumbled tortilla chips. Next time I will have to double the recipe!

This is my go-to chili recipe, with a few additions. I add a couple chopped bell peppers and sometimes carrots and corn if I'm feeling like it, and always at least double the spices. I either use the beer or instead use a shot of bourbon and a teaspoon of cocoa powder... both variations are delicious!

I have made many chili styles. My favorite cost too much due to ingredients and take literally all day. This chili has become a recent favorite due to the combination of the result and time it takes to make. It's a great start for accenting with favorite ingredients. I put in a little additional onion, garlic, and couple of extra spices usually. Easy to bend for different chili guests too. Suggestion: use liebers chili beans. Compliments the rest if ingredients. I used by mistake but came out super awesome. Thanks food.com!

I made this the night before to let the flavors marry, added some water when reheated. I was great tasting with sour cream, chips, and cheese. Thank you!

Delicious. I'm going to add a touch of liquid smoke next time, as well as strain some of the fluid out of the canned ingredients (it was a bit too thin). No doubt, it will be even better tomorrow!!!
