YUM!!! I've made this repeatedly and finally took the time for the review. First of all, I don't eat tomatoes - of any sort, and my dad's chili always had tons (of all varieties - stewed, paste, sauce, etc.). When I saw this recipe and that it would be a nice thick texture, I was so excited because I do like chili. Now every time I say I'm going to make it, I am simply asked "What time is dinner?" This is a cold-weather staple in my house. The only thing I do differently is saute fresh chopped onion with the meat in addition to the minced. Top it with cheese, more onion, and serve it with crackers and be prepared to welcome a food coma with open arms!! Thank you, Feisty, for an awesome recipe!!
UPDATE: I made this fabulousness again tonight - this time for Frito pie and to top off my homemade tamales (see my review on those!), and I added some pinto beans and fresh chopped jalapeno. Feisty, no matter what you do to this, it doesn't fail to disappoint! Thanks, again!
This chili rocks!!!!! I used venison and my only complaint was that I didn't double the recipe. My husband was out ot town (deer lease)and I had to call him to hurry home before I ate it all. He agreed this will be our new chili recipe from now on. Thanks a bunch for sharing.
YEE-HA! Totally chili, totally awesome, totally a fabulous chili and even though I am from the Northeast (went to school in Oklahoma, can't forget those Texans!) I can appreciate greatness. Thank you for sharing and I will definitely bring this to my husband's and mine 1st talegate at Rutger's stadium this year (New Jersey). Most grateful for your sharing this winner. Lolly
