      I made this to use up some veggies in my fridge that were starting to wilt so there's an extra Serrano pepper in mine and only 2 cans of beans (hey, it's what I had, ok?). Anyways, for something that only took ~50 minutes this was excellent. I didn't know whether to drain off the fat from browning the beef so I left it and I also added the liquid from my jar of tomatoes (halved, crushed in pan while cooking) as well as from the beans & the amount of sauce was excellent.

      This is a GREAT recipe! and it was cheap and easy too :) I made as written, but used Rotel tomatoes for a little extra heat and I drained and rinsed the beans to reduce sodium. Wonderfully chunky and tasty ~ I did add about 1 cup water/V8 mixed to give it a little juice. A new weeknight keeper recipe. Thanks diane ~ made for ZAAR COOKBOOK TAG, MARCH 2010!

      Very good! I made this for 6 people and slightly modified it. I would suggest you leave in the juice of the beans otherwise your chili will come out dry. Still good mind you just dry. I combined this recipe with #62571 for a complete meal.
