Being an Alabama fan (ROLL TIDE) I had to try this. It was very good chili. I thought it was a little on the sweet side so I added more chili powder and garlic to "offset" this. I also added about 1 TBSP cumin as well. Thanks for the recipe.
Excellent recipe. At first I thought it might be too watery but it cooked down nicely. I cut back on the green pepper just because my family doesn't like it. Thanks for a simple and delicious recipe.
