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.
Sooo good! Nuff said.
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.
Another great chili recipe to add to my list of favorites!
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.
I'm a real Iowan ... 7th generation, and I adore your authentic Texas chili ;)
I'm a 'real' Texan (5th generation) and I've never heard of any Texan putting sausage in her chili! So please don't call this 'authentic' - leave out the sausage and it is authentic. Anyway, if you like sausage or bacon in your chili, fine just don't go tellin some cowboy this is authentic! LOL Nevertheless, I like just about any chili, beans, no beans, white, red, it doesn't matter but I really don't want all the non-Texans bragging they are using a real authentic Texas recipe because it's not.
This is a very flavorful chili. I made it as written. I did wait until the end to add the cayenne pepper and added it 1/2 tsp at a time . In my opinion the chili tastes flat with no cayenne. 1/2 tsp added a bit of heat, I stopped at 1 tsp because I'd reached my comfort level. I think that the whole 1 1/2 tsp would take the chili up to the hot level. I do think adding a couple of cans of my favorite beans would make the chili even better. I was raised with chili containing beans and it's hard to give that up.
