"I found this recipe about 25 years ago in a consumer report magazine. They were trying to find the best can chili recipe. They came up with their own and this is it. I have made this for years. It is really good. If you like it hot like I do. Add cayenne pepper or tabasco sauce."

"This is a great chili recipe, even DH gave this 5 stars!!! I made this as written except I used one can of light red kidney beans and one of northern beans(what I had on hand), and I cut back on the amount of green pepper, as DH isn't a huge fan of it, but didn't seem to mind the amount I put in this chili. I also really liked using crushed tomatoes, no chunks!! Thanks for sharing the recipe Teresa!! Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game."
"Awesome tasting chili and easy to put together. I used red bell pepper instead of green and mixed beans instead of kidney beans with great results. It was even better the next day!"
"I followed the recipe with the exception of adding some chopped up chuck steak. By doubling the meat the ratio of beans and meat was perfect for us....but we are carnivores and love our chili meat-heavy. The flavors of the spices were wonderful....first time I've added allspice. It left a very nice but subtle flavor. Thanks for sharing. Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game, Summer 2014."
"A big Texas thumbs-up for this delicious chili and believe me -- we Texans know our chili. I've never thought of adding allspice to chili, but it does add a unique, but subtle taste. It's a nice crisp day today and this chili really hit the spot. Made for PRMR, January, 2014."
"This is really great! Do not make my mistake and use ancho chile powder and chipotle chile powder -- way too hot. I couldn't find my staple chile powder at the time I tried this. Otherwise, made as directed and served with the awesome recipe #211619. Thanks, TeresaS! Made for PRMR tag game."
"I loved everything about this recipe except DH thought it had to many kidney beans in comparison with the meat. The seasoning was just perfect. I would have never thought about the allspice or the coriander in chili but it worked well. The heat factor was perfect for us. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2012"
"This is lovely chilli, with good flavour and plenty of heat ( I use VERY hot chilli powder! A nice simple recipe,suitable for all levels of cooks...a real no failer!! Thanks Teresa!"
"Tripled this recipe and brought to a dinner for 25 college students served with corn bread - there wasn't a spec of chili leftover and all the kids kept thanking us for bringing the great chili. Probably should have quintupled it for that amount of people... Lots of meat and beans in every bite. If I had been making it for my own family, adding cayenne would have been a requirement."
"This is very good, with medium spiciness, enough for each bowl to help clear our my sinus passages, although not as spicy as our 1-alarm chili based on Wick Fowler's 2-alarm chili. I had 3 bowls, so there is no complaint here! Thanks for posting, Teresa! Made for Potluck Tag."
"delicious chili, I also added in 2 jalapeno peppers and some chili flakes (we like things really hot) making this 1 day ahead will only add to the flavor so that is what I did, I made this for my DS and it was thoroughly enjoyed, thanks for sharing Teresa!"
"This is really good chili Theresa. We enjoyed this tasty chili for dinner tonight. The large amount of chili powder gave the chili a very nice flavour. It was very flavourful, had nice textures and was quick and easy to make. I used white kidney beans and cayenne pepper and chili flakes to add heat. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing."
"Yum! This is good! I was a little bit leary of adding 8 tablespoons of chili powder, lol, but ended up adding some Tabasco and cayenne too. Thanks Teresa for sharing. Made for 1-2-3 Wonders tag game."
"This is my standard recipe, my mother gave it to me 15 years ago. I've also left out the ground beef and added a can of drained black beans or macaroni to make it meatless."
