My family and I enjoyed this delicious chili. I couldn't find Italian chicken sausages so I substituted Italian turkey sausages. The flavor was very spicy which is what we like in a chili. I did have some trouble with the directions. When you said add "veggies and garlic", I wasn't exactly sure which veggies you meant. I added the zucchini, celery, carrot, onion, and sweet red pepper since they were the only veggies not addressed in the recipe. No matter, the chili turned out great. Thanks and good luck in the contest.

This was really good. I used regular italian sausage because I couldn't find the chicken kind. Also, I cooked it in the crockpot on high for 2-2.5 hours after browning the sausage. The veggies were perfect, not overdone at all. Also, the leftovers froze well. I will definitely make this again.
