I was looking for a good chili that was easy to make. Out of all the chili receipe's, I picked this one. It was FABULOUS!!! I served it to my extended family and it was a hit! I followed the recipe except that I also added Kidney beans - just because I like them. We also added a spoonfull of sour cream before serving. The mushrooms are my favorite part and I think that the taco seasoning ties it all together. Thanks for a great recipe - it won't be long before I make it again!

Sweety - this was sooo good!! I have tried many chilis and yours is on my top list!! I don't know if it's because of the mushrooms, or the taco seasonings - but this was tasty!! Used fresh beans (that my dbf soaked and cooked for me in advance) and followed your recipe! Added a bit of parmesan at the end. Thanks Sweety - froze the leftovers and will be bringing them camping with us in August!! :)
