Even though I substituted a couple ingredients, this was really good! I skipped the crockpot, used ground turkey instead of beef, and I had some adzuki beans I needed to use for something, so I thought why not chili? I served it with jalapeno cornbread. Better than I expected!
Easy and delicious mid week meal. I made mine on the stove top and used a yellow pepper instead of green. I loved the use of cumin and served it with wholemeal rice.
Excellent, healthful, easy, chilli. A little on the hot side (not bad, but pretty noticable-if I made it just for myself) for this Irish northerner, but my husband and our friend (from TX & GA respectively) thought the heat was just right. I used ground turkey after reading another reviewer's comments that she couldn't tell the difference, and neither could I. I served it over rotini pasta and it made a yummy "chili mac". I'll be making this again!! Thanks for posting!
Quite nice chili - I did a double recipe in the crockpot a couple weeks ago, and it came out beautifully. In fact, it was good enough that the family wants it again, so I'm making it again for tomorrow night's dinner! I did add some mesquite honey to the chili to tone down some of the spiciness after a long cooking, but admittedly, I added a little extra garlic and a little extra chili powder. To me, it wasn't spicy... but to my twelve-year-old daughter, it had a little kick she didn't enjoy. (Not the fault of the recipe - only the fault of the chef, who likes spicy chili!) Definitely worth trying out for a good, flavorful chili on a cool fall evening.
Easy to make. Served it with brown rice.
Great, yummy tasting chili.....I did a few tweaks:I added a whole green pepper chopped, 1 whole yellow onion chopped, & 1/2 a jalapeno pepper chopped. I also used ground turkey and thought it was GREAT...the red wine & spces cooking together in the beginning even made it LOOK like beef. My husband didn't believe me that it was! Towards the end of the cooking time I though it looked a little meaty so I added another can of diced tomatoes & another tablespoon of chili powder. We obviously like SPICY chili!!! Like another reviewer-I let it cook on low for 8 hours and it worked out perfectly. A great, healthy way to spend a cold evening!!!
Good basic chili recipe and one that I will make again. I did not add the cumin as I was out but I don't think the recipe suffered at all.
