Very, very good recipe, especially for being so easy! I did have to make a few adjustments based on what I had on hand: HOT turkey Italian sausage and HOT chili beans (which is fine because I like my chili spicy), taco seasoning instead of chili powder (didn't know I was out until I was putting the recipe together), and an additional can of pinto beans instead of the black beans. The corn I omitted because of an allergy, and I also didn't bother to add the water because I prefer a thicker chili. My fiance and I were both really happy with with the final result (and our roomie, upon tasting it, said "Damn! That's good chili!" and promptly begged for permission to also have some for lunch the next day :) ). It IS a little salty for me, however, which I attribute to the sausage. Next time I make this, I will use plain ground turkey or beef. Otherwise, not changing a thing. Thanks!
I love this recipe. Its so easy to make. I like the two cooking options so if I'm in hurry I still can have this yummy chili although I love coming home to the aroma of it simmering in my slow cooker. I make a big batch of it and eat all week. It keeps really well in the fridge. Great recipe bbp!!
