We really liked this chili. I doubled the meat, onions, and beans. I also took your suggestion of adding in green bell peppers and threw in some frozen corn that needed used up. We don't like our chili "soupy" as you stated it is in the description, so I didn't double the tomatoes or tomato juice. This is a very versatile chili, that I am sure we will enjoy many times in the fall and winter. Thank you for a winner IA gal. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup ~Jan-June 2013.
