Excellent chili!! will make again
Excellant chili Caroline! I could have sworn I had a packet of Chili seasoning in the cuboard, but didn't! So concocted my own, cumin, chili powder, paprika and lots of red chilie flakes. Turned out sooo good! did the rest of the recipe as written and did use the pinto beans. I will be making this one again, thanks for posting!
My family loved this chili. They don't like beans so I left them out, everything else was exactly by the recipe. It came out slightly sweet, which we loved. It was easy and yummy, I will definitly make this again, thank you!
