Loved this chili!!! I read the two other reviews and wondered if something was missing, as I think I saw this show as well. I found a couple of bloggers that posted her recipe for the chili from her actual cookbook. It listed that there are optional ingredients; add a can of diced tomatoes & chilis (rotel was suggested) and a jalapeno - sliced, were the two other ingredients not found on foodnetwork.com. I made 1/2 of the recipe, just the two of us and made a couple of changes. I used 1/2 chipotle chili powder for half of the chili powder and the other 1/2 just regular chili powder, omitted the cayenne pepper because of the chipotle, use all kidney beans (what I had on hand) and did add the optional masa mixed with the water. For me, it made a thinner/soup type of consistency and not too thick for my tastes. Thanks for sharing the recipe and congrats on your win in the football pool!!!

This was definitely easy, but not quite perfect. I didn't have a problem with the consistency, but we did add quite a bit of water, which isn't mentioned in the ingredients list. It definitely needed more seasoning. It would be good as a burrito filling. Thanks for posting! Made for the Lively Lemon Lovelies, ZWT8.

This gets 5 stars for flavor, but only 3 stars for consistency. As written, with only 8 ounces of tomato sauce, it was way too thick, and I ended up adding another 15-oz can of tomato sauce. I skipped the masa step, because I didn't want to thicken it any more. But the flavor was excellent. Made for Spring 2012 PAC.
