    Sue Lau's Note:

    Some people like beans in their chili, some do not. This chili has no beans, but if you like beans, you can easily serve them on the side.

      Sue, this was a fantastic chili as I am one who does not like beans in my chili and the flavor was terrific! Not too spicy, and very filling. I may add some chopped onions next time as I will be making this again, and think this would be a great addition to any football gathering! Thanks! :)

      This was a great basic chili con Carne. I made a big batch of it and my family loved it. We ate it served over rice, and as chili with melted cheese and crumbled crackers or corn chips on top. It was also used to top nachos. Just a great basic chili that is very versatile. Thanks!

      I made this dish for a tex-mex night at a friend's potluck dinner. The results mainly consisted of "This isn't chili, this is just taco meat." Perhaps it was my cooking, perhaps it's because I'm in Boston and no one knows a good bowl of red if it came up and bit them in the face. Regardless I think the recipe needs more to help it stand out from just being taco meat. Especially if you're in the North.
