My mother was given this recipe by a friend years ago. I've made it for many occasions...perfect for Super Bowl parties (Go Rams!) or taking to work. I have yet to prepare it without getting multiple requests for the recipe. It's a great recipe to freeze or make ahead -- it tastes great the second day!

I thought this was really good chili. It's sweet, and mild, which is what I like. This tastes very similar to my mom's chili recipe. I added 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves and scaled the amount of meat way back, I used only a half pound of ground chuck, and thought that was plenty. I will make this again. It was simple enough and tasty enough.

I made this last week and Hubby & I both love it. The only thing I changed was I added 2 cans of crush tomatoes, 28oz cans. We just can't eat as spicy of foods as we used to.. It is a great recipe. Thanks for sharing. Jazzie..

I thought this wonderful, and My husband loved it too!! I didn't have any french onion soup, and the weather was too nasty to go out, so I chopped an onion, and used beef broth instead. Also add a can of tomatoes. We will sure have this again!!
