Very good, not much I can say that hasn't already been said. I left out the bell peppers (personal preference). I substituted beef broth in place of beer since I didn't have any & also replaced the water with beef broth for more flavor. Thanks for sharing.
What a wonderful addition to our Game Day party yesterday! I used only 1.5lbs of ground beef and added extra veggies while keeping the seasonings the same. I followed the instructions through #3 and then threw everything in the CROCK POT on high for 5 hours and it was sooo good. The crockpot was nearly full to the brim, but after the game, there was only a teensy amount leftover. Highly recommended chili!!
I had a nachos with ground beef for a party and let me tell you this recipe WAS AMAZING!!!!! I made tons and by the end of the party the guests were eating from unfinished plates from guest who were already gone... hahahaha I did not put the beans (I was thinking more of a taco meat) and I did not use cheddar cheese or sour cream... the beer gave it an AMAZING flavor, for the 4 lbs of ground beef I added 1 lb of chorizo, since I had it in the freezer, let me tell you this recipe is THE BEST OF THE BEST... I did not have red pepper flakes and I used cayenne powder.. it worked also... LOVED IT!!!! it looks like a long list of ingredients, but I'm sure you have already 75% of them in your kitchen... totally worth it, fast and easy.
Great chili! This was my first time and it won't be my last. I had some ground venison I needed to use up so I used half venison & half ground beef. Also, my DH was worried it would be too spicy with the jalapeno so I left it out. Next time it will go in there though! Thank you Kim!
What a great chili! We loved the beer and honey added to this. Gave it a little something that made you go 'hmmmm!".. I did make one change and made this with ground turkey bc I do not do beef. It came out fabulously. I used Shiner Bock for the dark beer which is a Texas brewed specialty. I would definitely agree to use a dark or bock beer here as anything light would not add the same deep flavor touch that the dark beer does. This is an excellent creation Kim! WTG! Made for Bev Tag!
This was a very tasty chili, worth the effort. I did change the recipe a bit but just by adding one other ingredient & slow cooking it in a crock pot for 6 hours. I cut the recipe in half and added some smoked german sausage. I used nothern/pinto beans & white kidneys. I feel the sausage gave it a smokey flavor simular to a Texan Chili. I will do this one again. Thanks for posting Kim127!
This was a good chili - I did use beans, but otherwise made it according to the recipe. I would add more hot ingredients next time, as we like ours with a kick. I used the crockpot overnight, but I think it got a little too done that way, so next time, I'll simmer it on the stovetop as directed. Overall, very good, and I can easily adapt it to perfect it for our family.
Woo-hoo. This is good! I added some roasted peppers and roasted corn. No other changes and it was fabulous. A very nice change from the same old chili. Loved it and will certainly make again. Thankss for a great one.
My girlfriend and I have been eating like kings since we discovered Zaar. We had this chili last week and it was excellent! We put this in our favorites file for future use! Thanks Kim! Mike
This was very good chili! I made a huge batch for a super bowl party at work and every last drop disapeared, and there was only 5 of us! Everybody loved it, I will definitely make again. Thanks Kim!
