This chili was really good after some modifications... Instead of the chili pepper i used a jalepeno pepper, then i used two cans of kidney beans instead of one, and then one tbsp of chili powder instead of two. I didnt have ground cayenne pepper, so instead i substituted cayenne pepper sauce 1 tsp. Definately the best chili I have had.


I prefer "Texas" chili to regular hamburger chili and this recipe was a good jump off point. I added a can of beer to the sauce which I find tenderizes the meat. I also added japolenos for spice.

What a Dish!

Pretty good chili- I really enjoyed the steak (I don't care much for ground meats). I used a sirloin steak- wasn't sure what cut to use, so I just got was on sale. I cut the recipe in half and put it in the crockpot all day. I was going to sear the meat first, but I didn't have time. Instead of a green chile, I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles. I added a small can of tomato sauce because it seemed too thick at first, but at the end it was almost too thin- I left the lid off the crockpot for a while so it would thicken up. I added 1/2 green bell pepper and used one can of pinto beans. Served with light sour cream, cheese, and Honey Corn Bread from this site. A hearty, very filling meal!
