At the last minute, I grabbed this chili recipe for a chili cook-off at work. I made it exactly as directed. It was easy peasy! Everybody loved it and out of 14 entries, it got the 2nd most votes. People said it was very good and spicy, but not obnoxiously hot. I'm going to make a pot for the family this weekend. Good stuff!
Excellent chili. I omit oregano. Very good, whle family loves it!!!!
This is by far one of the best chili recipes I've found. I opted out of using the bacon and added a habenero for a little extra kick. For a little healthier option, I'll substitute half ground turkey for the beef.
Wow, GOOD and SPICY stuff! My husband loves this! I used what I had on hand--so used ground turkey (in place of beef), and chicken broth (in place of beef broth), and this turned out super good! Loved the bacon in this! Thanks for the awesome recipe!
Loved this recipe!!! I couldn't add the 2 chopped onions because I ran out of room in the crock pot, this recipe most certainly feeds more than 8 people! I added onion powder instead and didn't puree the tomatoes (was lazy) and just chopped them, this chili was a huge hit!!!!!! Thanks for posting!
this is a damn good chili there is no changing this recipe the seasoning and ingredients are perfect VERY GOOD CHILI award wining quality
My husband loves this recipe just as is - but it's too spicy for me! I scale down the spicy stuff but only a tad. Love the flavor!
Everyone loved this chili! Mine turned out a bit watery I'm guessing due to a lack of tomato paste, so I might use diced tom's next time instead of crushed. But the flavor was kick butt!
Being a Texan this what I expected. Good hot chili. True Texas chili does not have the beans, so I omitted them. I also subbed some good ole chipolte peppers for some of the cayenne pepper. Very nice flavor!
This was really yummy. I cut all the spices & jalapeno in half and still won "spiciest chili" at my church chili cook off. I used Sweet Italian turkey sausage, (about 2.5 lbs.) in stead of ground beef and it added a really nice flavor. Great recipe, I'll make it again!
