    Good, but fairly spicy for me!!! Has lots of good chili flavor though!

    I love this recipe!! I have made it at least 20 times and shared it with many people. I have yet to have anyone not love it. My only change, is that I use canned tomatoes with the liquid instead of tomato sauce and fresh tomatoes.

    By far one of the best child's that I have eaten. I added a can of drained corn at the end and drained the bean juice. My kids and husband loved it. Made cornbread along with it.

    Excellent chili recipe, although the 5 minute prep is more like 35. Also, this makes a LOT of chili. I could barely fit all of this in my pot. My variations include the following: <br/><br/>1) Use extra lean ground beef and do NOT drain the fat<br/>2) Get rid of the yucky canned beans liquid<br/>3) Use a 29 oz can of crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce<br/>4) Use 2 cups of Trader Joes beef bouillon instead of water<br/>5) Skip the salt altogether<br/>6) Use 1 Jalapeno instead of 2 green chilis<br/>7) Add 2 green peppers chopped, 4 cloves of garlic, and 1 pound sliced sweet sausage (browned first to facilitate cutting)<br/>8) After browning the meats and cooking the vegetables, I transferred everything into a slow cooker for 3 hours of more uniform cooking on high.<br/><br/>It was delicious -- definitely not too spicy for my wife's delicate palette. For me, I added hot sauce in my separate bowl. Enjoy!!

    Really good but a little spicy for me! I halved all the spices. Another time I halved the chili powder and subbed curry powder for cumin. It was a nice, sweeter spice. I added mushrooms and left out the peppers and celery. Yum! Best thing is, it's impossible to screw up.

    With all that turkey leftovers we used the turkey instead of ground beef. We didn't add the 2 cups of water and I only used 1/2 the liquid from the kidney beans and pinto beans. I made cornbread using this Corn Muffin recipe http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Best-Ever-Corn-Muffins/Detail.aspx and my three men loved the meal!

    I LOVE this recipe! I lost it once and I didn't stop looking for it until I found it! I took one of the suggestions from one of the comments in using Beef Broth instead of water. I make it at home and the family love it! I made it for a pot luck at work and they loved it aswell! Great Recipe!

I am a teacher, and have been married to my high school sweetheart for almost 9 years. I have a niece who is 7, and a nephew who is 1. Also, I have 2 sweet kitties. Sinatra is a bit on the plump side, and Audrey is a petite dainty thing. They both are almost mirror images of each other. <a href="http://photobucket.com/" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v202/airbornearmywife/joshnatras2.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a> <embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" src="http://wmg.photobucket.com/pbwidget.swf?pbwurl=http://wmg.photobucket.com/albums/v202/airbornearmywife/1159026847.pbw" height="120" width="400"></embed> <a href="http://www.amazingcounter.com"><img border="0" src="http://c8.amazingcounters.com/counter.php?i=1680027&c=5040394" alt="Web Counter"/></a> <img src="http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
