This was a very nice chili for a cold night. Easy to prepare & the results were terrific. I added 1 onion & subbed a chipotle pepper for the cayenne. It does have the flavor of the Wick Fowler packets. Thanks PanNan for another terrific recipe!

Although I changed a few things (like less chili powder for the kiddies), this was a very good chili. I used one pound of ground beef and one pound of small red kidney beans as well as a little sugar (probably 1 tsp or less). I usually try to sneak in a few healthy extras in my soups, so I added about 1/3 cup rolled oats and one green bell pepper disguised by chopping it into small bits in my blender. The rest of the family never noticed and even my very picky sister gobbled it up--she said it reminded her of Krystal's chili. I guess that's a good thing since she likes Krystal's!

This is a very simple chili to prepare. I made a few changes for personal preference but overall left the basic recipe alone. I used beef broth instead of water, left out the cumin and added half the salt and used 4 large frozen tomatoes in my freezer. I made this the day before I needed it so the flavours would have a chance to blend together. Thanks for such a tasty recipe.

As one of those people who has always slow cooked cooked chili for 2-3 hours to get it just so, I was just bowled over by the fabulous flavor of this dish. It was smoky and spicy and meaty with spices running throughout every savory bite. I used ground turkey which can a particular challenge for beefy chili - in this one it worked just fine. I was making a small batch with 1 pound of meat and tossed in a full can of tomatoes. That turned out to be just the right consistency for me 'cause I do like to slurp my chili a bit. Thanks PanNan!

Everyone gave this a huge High Five Stars. I did reduce the chili powder and cayenne pepper for the weenies in this household. I also added mushrooms as a personal preference. This was wonderful. My pot of chili is almost gone and I was hoping for left overs. Thanks for my new chili recipe!!!!

Really nice chilli! I think I made a fairly good guess on how much diced tomatoes to add because the chilli turned out great! I halved this for the two of us, used those yummy kidney beans, and 2 tsp of Australian chilli powder - very different to the stuff you use I assure you!! Nice and spicy, we both really enjoyed - thanks for posting! PS For the sake of us that don't live in the US, please put some sort of measurements - a 'can' doesn't mean much!
