This Chili is wonderful.. It is so easy to make, I now make a double batch and then add eggs to it the next morning for Breakfast burritos. Top with a little more salsa.. Yummmm.

Very good and easy to make. I followed the recipe other then I didn't add the olives. I loved it but of course the rest of the family thought it could have been spicer. They just added more hot sauce at the table. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

I substituted morning star crumbles for the lean ground beef and used fire roasted can tomatoes. In addition to the listed ingredients I Add 1 can of pinto beans, 1 can of refried beans, about 1 tbs of minced garlic, 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, chili powder and paprika to taste. The chili was fast to make, had great flavor and the refried beans gave it some rich depth. Will make it again.
