Way too hot for us and although I doubled the recipe I did not double the chili powder so either my spice is a very hot variety or the 3 tsp cayenne put it out of our comfort zone. I think I will make it again and tone down the hot spices so the whole family can enjoy it.

Although we are not chiliheads, we do like a good bowl of red, and this is an excellent recipe. We used three pounds of chili grind beef (coarse grind in 1/2 inch pieces) to one pound of sausage and doubled everything else but the cayenne. Since a big football game was on, we browned, chopped, and stirred, and simmered through the first stage and then continued the process in a low oven during the game. Serving beans on the side (along with other add ins) allows everyone to stir up their favorite flavors. Makes a great buffet. Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe! I used turkey sausage and threw in some green pepper for color but otherwise stuck to the recipe...all that chili powder really makes it great!

Very delicious! I also added beans to mine, but otherwise followed the directions, and it was the best chili I have ever had. The sausage makes a big difference- will definately make again and again! Thank you!

I've never used sausage in chili before- I'd been missing out! It added such great flavor. I also love my chili thick, and this delivered. I have to confess, I added kidney beans (I'm a yankee!) This chili was delicious... but a little on the spicy side. I will use a little less cayenne next time, otherwise, will faithfully follow this recipe!

I added a cup of kidney beans, one red chili and simmered on the stove for an additional three hours and it was great! The chili the right amount of spicyness too.

Awesome Chili! I served it at a SuperBowl party and everyone loved it. Most people had 3-4 bowls. I increased the serving size to 18-22 and it still worked great, except for the salt amount. I had to slowly add more because the quantity the increased recipe called for did not give it enough flavor, and I'm a conservative salt user.
