I made half this recipe for about 40 people. Got lots of compliments on it. However, it wasn't spicy enough for my taste, so I added Cayenne pepper. I'll definitely make it again!

I scaled this recipe back considerably to make enough for 6-8 people and it was great. It freezes very well too-

It was a good basis for a simple chili if you don't have a mix packet; however, it needs more uumph. We added salt, more chili powder and more onion. After that, it was pretty good.
