      I had a large jar of nopalitos left over from another recipe, so I thought that I would try this. I used ground beef instead of the chuck, but otherwise followed the recipe. It was bland and a bit dry-probably in part to using ground beef, so I added a can of rotel tomatoes, about 1/2 c. ketchup, 2 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce to add a bit more flavor. I think the nopalitos adds an unusual taste to the chili. Thanks for submitting the recipe!
