Wow! I was pleasantly surprised. I can see why you won the cook off. This is packed full of yummy flavors. Looking at the ingredients I didn't really think it would come out so good. I cut the recipe in half so besides adding BEANS I used my whole can of green chili salsa. I did prepare this the day before up to step 4. I have always believed chili is best on the second day. This does make a lot so we have plenty of left overs. Thanks for posting.
I liked this recipe it is really good. I thought it tasted almost "mexican" like with all the chili's. I will say with my rating that I am from Cincinnati and we have VERY different tastes when it comes to chili so take my review with a grain of salt, but 3 stars means that I liked it. I did serve with Fritoes and cheese when all was said and done. Thanks for the recipe!
This truly is a prizewinning chili! I know for a fact it is because I won 1st Place with it today at my school's 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off! :) I used chuck roast, added all of the spices in step 3 and let it simmer for 2 hours before adding the beans. I also added a second can of beans because I love lots of beans in my chili. Thank you for sharing this OUTSTANDING chili recipe, Lorie. It is a true keeper!
Delish! I can certainly see why you won a cookoff with this one!! This had a nice mix of flavors and spices - you've gotta love a chili recipe where you don't use 'spoons' to measure the chili powder, lol. I couldn't find the green chili salsa, so I used red. The directions didn't say when to add the gsreen chilies, so I added them in step 2. I'm also in agreement with you on the beans! Thanks Lorie for a great recipe.
