Look no further for a chili recipe - this is the best! Be sure to use hot paprika because it makes this dish. I add a little extra spice by measuring a heaping tablespoon each of chili powder, cumin, and hot paprika. We also prefer one large onion and one medium yellow pepper. I now also add 1-2 tsp of jalapenos for an extra, tasty kick. We like it spicy! Leave out the extra sugar if you want it less sweet.



YUM!!! I mde this for my husands work, double the recipe and they licked my crockpot clean in about 20 minutes! I took the advice of other reviewers and added jalapenos and serano peppers, slow cooked for about 8 hours and modesty went out the window....the best chili I ever tasted! Thanks!



This was fantastic! I made it for a party, and I used vegetarian soy crumbles instead of meat. I fooled all the carnivores at the party!
