I'm sure there must be steps I was supposed to get on my own but did not. At 45 minutes I had well=seasoned shoe leather.Added beer and continued simmering for half hour. Ended up taking DH to dinner. The seasonings were good but there must be some step the author neglected, but it was just not edible. Sorry.

Good stuff. It's important to keep in mind that Texas Chili is completely different than homestyle chili (just like green chile or white chili). I love it. Like a few others I saw, I substituted sirloin (tri-tip) for the ground beef. I also left out the cayenne to make it more kid-friendly, but it still has a wonderful kick. My favorite way to eat Texas chili is with a side of beans

This is ok chili, nothing spectacular. As a Texan, I can tell you this isn't a true Texas chili. But it's a good one to cook for first timers, with little ingredients you can make your own variation the next go around.

Followed the recipe as published. This New England Yankee discovered that authentic Texas chili tastes amazingly similar to good taco filling -- Not that there is anything wrong with that. I ate this rolled in flour tortillas with sharp cheddar and shredded lettuce. It was terrific. I also had it in a bowl atop a bed of corn tortilla chips. That was great too. I couldn't really taste the Jimmy Dean sausage. Next batch will get more cayenne. There *will* be a next batch.

This chili is the BEST I've ever made. Me and my wife loved it. I made 120 servings of it for a large group and it was a hit!

This is fabulous! I made this last night and used it for frito pie. My kids couldn't get enough of this. I served it with the fritos, cheddar cheese, sour cream, avacado, green onions and sliced jalapenos. Thank you so much for this recipe, it is really good. We loved it.

This was ok, but maybe too different from the way I like chili. The chili flavor was good and plenty hot for my taste. The texture was too dry. While I don't want soupy chili, this was not loose enough. Also, I missed the tomatoes and beans, alot. Guess real Texas chili just isn't for me. But thanks for a new recipe to try.
