Yummy! Very good! The only thing I have a problem with is people who change half the ingredients ( in lots of recipes on this site ) and then say the recipe isn't any good. How the heck would they know????



I made this recipe AS IS before I made any changes and it was hands down the best chili recipe I have made!! next time though, I put my own little spin on it and I think it elevated it to another level! The recipe as is has a thinner consistency and isn't overly spicy. I added up to 1/2 tsp of cayenne to make it spicier, but what make it out of this world was 1/4 cup corn meal!!! Made it thick like chili you would get in a restaurant. This recipe makes a lot so you can freeze half if need be and is absolutely delicious!!!

I could eat this chili until my stomach bursts! All the ingredients are in the right proportion; I wouldn't suggest altering a single thing. Take it to a pot-luck and I guarantee that people will gobble it up. I like things hot, and I would consider this chili to be about a 5/10 on my scale. It'll clear your sinuses, but you won't be gulping down milk to cool your tongue! This recipe heats up well in the microwave, and freezes just fine - we've got three meal's worth in the deep freeze right now. By all means, give this chili recipe a try, I'm sure you'll like it.
