Lennie I thought I had already rated this, but I guess I did not. This is the best chili I have had in a long time! I love your directions about adding your our amount of spice. The first time I made it I did not add as much, but the second time I added just like you and my child still loved it! This is a winner of chili, and yes I love the beans in it! Thanks for writing it down Lennie....

Lennie This is a keeper! I used 1 1/2 pds lean ground beef and 1/2 pnd of Boca Ground, and did not drain the meat. This is definetely thick, but i didn't need to water it down.The total cook time from start to finish was about 2 1/2 hrs. I used the exact ingredients, except i used the whole 8 oz package of mushrooms. Thanks for a great easy to follow recipe! Served with chef "Cooking at The Cottage" 's Guacamole at the Cottage Guacamole at the Cottage.

A easy, yummy chili. I didn't change anything and it came out great. Although, next time I would not put so much chili powder because 5 tbsp makes it pretty strong. But, you can easily change that.

I greatly enjoyed this chili! Fresh flavor, and comforting on a cold winter day. I used 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef, and lowered the spice amount. I didn't add the flour; I think it would be a nice, slightly thicker texture with it, but I enjoyed it anyway. The brown sugar is a great addition! Thanks, Lennie, for finally writing this recipe down.
