This was a good start, but when I made it to the recipe the first time, I had to throw it out -- it was a greasy watery soup of unseasoned meat and beans. The second time, I sweated the onions (in a tiny bit of olive oil) separately from the beef. When the beef was browned, I drained the grease and patted it dry. Then I added the spice package (plus a lot of extra chili powder, paprika and garlic powder, plus some Worcestershire sauce), and gradually added water as the spices and meat cooked together. Most of the water cooked off, and then the onions were added. From that point, I followed the recipe, with the addition of some srichacha (asian pepper paste) right at the end -- added a lovely kick. With those changes, the recipe is a definite keeper for us. :)

This chili was SO GOOD! I've made it two times now and the first time I followed the recipe exactly, except that I added a teaspoon of cumin. It was delicious. My only complaint was that it was a little soupy and would have been too runny for chilidogs. So the second time I used a half cup water instead of two and it was just the right dog consistency.


Not bad, I love using the crock pot. I thought it was a bit sweet and may try leaving out the tomato paste next time. It makes a lot and I've had leftovers for lunch many times. Don't forget to serve some good bread with it!
