    Good short-cut recipe if you don't have time to make the real thing. Serves 2-3 people, not 8.

    Awesome!! I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. Unexpectedly spicy but I loved it. My BF did as well! Served with Recipe #82985. For 4 ingredients, it cant be beat!! A definite repeater! Thanks:)

    This is fantastic chili! I served it with lettuce and cheese, made for a wonderful and filling "taco salad" My husband liked it so much he requested it for his birthday dinner. The plan is to make chili dogs with low carb bread. I will be singing the praises of this to all my friends. Thanks!

    mmm DH loved it! I served the chili on whole wheat hot dog buns, boy were they good!! I used "hot & spicy" taco seasoning and left out the green chillies; it was wonderful, just the right amount of heat. a very tasty Saturday night supper and diabetic too!! thanks for posting i will be making this again.


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
