This recipe was seriously lacking something. The ingredients were good, but the chili had no zip! There was no bite whatsoever to it, just a bunch of different flavorings roaming around in the pot! I didn't even realize I was eating chili until my husband asked me what it was! What I did was I added some other ingredients to this sauce and saved the pot! I was determined not to throw out my meat and ingredients! Sorry--- but thank you.

As previous reviewer, I was concerned about the 2 lbs of brn sugar. All for nothing! It's just like we like it... sweet, tomato-y, with a hint of spices. Made a second batch after tasting. Thanks, B'foot, for a deeelish recipe.

I must admit after reading the first review I was a little iffy about trying it. I also thought that 2 lbs of brown sugar was excessive, but I must admit for a first time chili maker the recipe was just excellent :) I tried it on some grilled chicken breast and oh my it was trully delicious :). Thanks so much for recipe ;) I will absolutly be back :) I hope the rest of the recipes are as good :)
