This tastes fantastic. Several families camp with us and each night we take turns cooking. I made this our last campout and I was told I have to make this again. It doubles very easily. I usually add a can or corn, and add whatever cheese I have on hand, mexican, colby jack or cheddar. Thanks Bonnie

I thought this was excellent - my bf thought it a little on the bland side (but he's used to me making blistering hot Texas Chili). I made one change - I added about a half bottle of beer - and cooked it a tad longer to reduce the resulting liquid. Next time I might use fresh green chilis... but will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!

I have just enjoyed a bowl of this chili, over rice and topped with cheese. I am now feeling rather full and very happy. I had only one can of green chilies, but it was marked HOT. The contents turned out to be whole jalapenos, which I seeded and chopped. For me, I think the heat was sufficient. Am looking forward to seeing how the flavor changes after an overnight wait. I expect it to be even better. Thank you very much for posting this recipe.
