  1. This is way better than the packet!!!! I had to add the peppers lol I tell you what.. next time I am thinking I don't need to add them.. lol excellently hot as a good hearty chili should be. I made an old cast iron dutch over full so had to double the recipe. I used elk, antelope, turkey and beef ground together.. just personal preference there. for anyone reading these and trying to decide if this is your recipe, lol stop thinking its IT! LOL Thanks SScuddlers for posting!
  2. This is my favorite chili crock pot recipe! DH absolutely loves it, so I make it whenever I can. I leave out the onions and use an onion powder instead, as I like the flavor of onions, but not the onions themselves. I also use canned chili beans in a chili sauce, for extra flavor. I serve it with fresh baked cornbread, and mmmmmmmm! An easy dinner that is super yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!
  3. Almost like the packets :-) I used 1/2 bag of pinto beans instead of the canned, with some of the cooking juice instead of plain water. I also put in a 1/4 cup of corn muffin jiffy mix, which I always add to my chili. Perfect way to end a cold day.
