I thought this was good, but my husband actually prefers chili with ground beef instead of beef cubes. I may make it again, but it won't be our "standard chili recipe."

This recipe is fabulous and I love the addition of the carrots.I only add half the cooked bacon to the crock pot and reserve the other half as a garnish to sprinkle on top of each bowl , so it stays crunchy -yum!

Wow! This was delicious! It was such a great change of pace to have the stew meat instead of the same old ground beef. I did have to add about 3 times as much chili powder for my chili loving DH, but the rest is the same. Even picky DH loved this! We topped it with some shredded cheddar cheese and served with some warm tortillas. I feel like I'm living in San Antonio again. Made and Reviewed for TexMex Tag - Thanks! :)
