“This is the best and easiest chili I have ever had. I make it often and if there are any leftovers I freeze some to pull out for a cold winter day.”

Absolutely delicious! My husband does NOT like chili, and when I told him that we would be eating this for dinner, he was not thrilled. However, he RAVED about this and told me to give it five stars. I made no changes to the recipe, and even though some reviewers said it was 'bland', neither my husband or I like particularly hot dishes, so I kept the chili powder as is - it was PERFECT. I only had one pound of meat, but it was fine. And, I dumped the whole thing in the crock pot and cooked on low for the afternoon. Thank you for a fabulous recipe!

We are Minnesotan's. I love this recipe, although it is a little bland. I prefer a little more flavor. To start I wanted to do this in the crock pot, so I browned the Hamburger and then the veggies in a pan. I added the rest, plus a bit more chili powder, a little cumin, as well as a few glugs of worschestire, and a dash or two of cinnamon. Awesome, because we like the chili a little sweet I added 2 tablespoons of sugar rather then the 1. Good basic start to a great pot of chili.



The chili was excellent! Thanks Judi for sharing the recipe! I did add a little gr. cumin and a little extra chili pepper.
