    Used 46oz tomato juice, small can of puree and a can of pinto beans. Followed everything else. Loved the recipe.

    We love this recipe! I do cook the onions, celery and peppers with the meat, and I use a pack of chili-o instead of chili powder, and V8 instead of plain tomato juice. It is delicious and even my picky eaters enjoy it!

    I made this for Superbowl day dinner - really late on the review!<br/>We loved this chili! Neither of us like a lot of heat so it was just about perfect for us. My spices may have been elderly because after cooking for some time I added more chili powder, cumin and oregano. I'm delighted I didn't halve the recipe as now I have another meal ready for a busy weeknight. Always a good thing. :)<br/>Thanks so much for posting it Molly.

    Very nice chili that is surprising like Wendy's. The chili powder used makes a lot of difference. I used HEB bulk San Antonio chili powder. For you guys who are not in Texas, San Antonio powder is "sweeter" with less pungency. The chili is "gentle" - my family likes it milder than I do. Personally, I like butt burning chili - this is not it. For those who want a kinder, gentler chili, this is really good.

    Pretty good stuff! I do think that next time I will saute the onions and celery to soften them up a bit before I add in the other ingredients.
