We enjoyed this but felt it wasn't as good as other chili recipes we've tried, and it could have used more spice. If I make it again, I'd add more spices like cayenne pepper plus some cumin, oregano, cinnamon, etc. I think using generic chili powder played a part in the blandness. Some sharp cheddar on top takes it up a notch!
Wonderful chili. My dh & I enjoyed it very much. I didn't have any ground beef so I used a mixture of ground vension and ground pork, that I added to the sirlion steak. What flavor and texture this has. You can really taste the chili...I also used a good quality habanero and chipolte sauces ...yumm. I put this in my crockpot on low and it cooked all afternoon. How easy was that? I will make this again and again. My neighbor wants to give you 5*+++, it truly was enjoyed by all, served with soda bread scones. Thanks for sharing.
