  1. This was so yummy. I make chili all the time because my husband and I love it, but my daughter and son never like any new recipe that I bring to the table. My daugther loved this and she is so picky. It was very tasty, so much seasoning in it. We put cheddar on it only because we didn't have the cheese that was called for. Other than that, went exactly by the recipe. Will definately be making this again, Thank so much for sharing~!
  2. Smelled great during the first hour of simmering, but after adding the tomato paste, it came to the consistency and taste of spaghetti sauce. It made me a little sick to eat it like that and ended up throwing the rest out. Probably won't attempt this again but thanks.
