I chose this recipe because of the healthy tomato products in it. It turned out to be much too thick for our liking. I had to keep thinning it. If I make it again, I'll cut back on the beef and tomato paste. Thanks for the recipe.

This is a thick tomatoey chili. I made it exactly as written other then I only used two tablespoons of chili powder and no hot sauce as I knew that would be spicey enough for me. I ate a bowl as written but it was a bit too thick for me so I added some beef broth (I didn't measure I just poured it in). I thought it was even better then. I made this for lunches and it reheated well. I served mine with cheese.

I used a combo of lean ground beef and ground moose, 1.5 tbsp reg chili and 1.5 tbsp mexican chili. I had no tomato paste so used more tomato sauce. We found it to be on the spicy side but unfortunately the party guests will not have their say as we ate it all!!

This chili was great! I made this for the Superbowl and the whole family loved it. I love thick chili and this definitely filled my craving. I added a little more chili powder then said. Thank you!

I accidentally bought tomato sauce and tomato paste flavored with oregano and basil (discovered after I added them). I'd seen oregano used in a few other recipes, but the basil worried me. Italian chili?? In any case, it was still very, very good. My first-ever attempt at making homemade chili, so easy, and we really enjoyed it at Super Bowl halftime!

GREAT Chili! I'm a proud Minnesotan and this is the way we do chili! I doubled the recipe - I think I could have tripled it! The double recipe fits perfectly in my 5 qt crockpot. Instead of 2 cans of kidney beans, I did one pinto and one kidney. I also added a 1 lb of browned ground turkey.

This was great chili! I tend to prefer mine a tad bit sweeter, so I added two tablespoons of brown sugar, but otherwise I made it just per your instructions. Yummmeeee!
