I love this's the same way my grandmother used to make 9 year old asked for a second bowl she really loved it..and so did I.



I was hoping for a chili taste but less spicy for the kids.Tasted like manwich sloppy joes with beans. Very sweet and even my kids who like sweet didn't like it. Will not be making again. Sorry.



I used this because I had all these ingredients. I love making chili & trying new recipes. This is VERY easy & my husband absolutely loved it. He talked about it 3 different times! Yes, it is sweet because of the chili sauce, but it is very good. I only used 1 pound of beef- extra lean, of course! Thanks for submitting!
