My husband and I really liked this recipe. I followed the advice of other posters and drained the majority of the liquid from the beans, as we like thicker chili. Also, I sauteed the onion, celery, pepper, and garlic in butter with a bit of chipotle chili powder before adding to the slow cooker. I will definitely make this again!


I had success with this recipe, with a few small changes from reading reviews. I did NOT add celery. I also drained 2 cans of beans and left one undrained. I used one can of tomato puree and one can of diced tomatoes. I bumped up the seasonings by using 1.5 T of chili powder, extra garlic, and almost 1 tsp of tabasco. The chili came out great and my husband described the flavor as "earthy." He liked it.


I love this recipe! I have made it twice now and the only thing I did different was add more of the veggies and used a little cheyenne pepper to give it more of kick (but not too much). I ended up making it with pinto beans the second time around instead of kidney beans (I live in CO and during the blizzards the grocery stores were a little low on items) and it tasted great once again.
