This was delicious! It was very much enjoyed by the whole family. I used Tinkerbelle's suggestion and served it over spaghetti noodles with garlic cheesy bread on the side. I topped the spaghetti with shredded cheddar cheese.....it was sooooo good. I added a tablespoon Worcestershire sauce, a bay leaf, and a teaspoon each of dried oregano and basil and some fresh cracked black pepper and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes to the recipe.I will use this for chili spaghetti all the time! R.I.P. Stacey, thanks for posting all these treasured wonderful recipes!
We really enjoyed this chili recipe. Great flavor to it and very easy to prepare. I didn't start in time to use the crock pot, so I let it simmer for about 2 hours on the stove. Delish! I served it over spaghetti noodles (as I do most often with chili) & garlic sourdough toast on the side. Made in remembrance of Stacy.
A really lovely Chili, great flavor, easy to make and easy on the pocket too! I served it with lots of crisp salads and crackers. thanks for posting
