“This is an easy to make departure from your traditional chili. This recipe calls for pepperoni, mushrooms and a jar of prepared spaghetti sauce. Every time I make this for others, I am always asked for the recipe.”

I just won my office's chili cook off with this recipe. Like others I substituted spicy Italian sausage for the ground beef and I diced the pepperoni. We also added chopped green bell pepper as others suggested. We also upped the chili powder a little.

This was a fantastic chili! I make chili once a year for my job'a annual chili cook off and I tried this one and it was the only crock pot to be emptied and I won - easily. Very easy to prepare and tasty - and I don't even like chili! This is a repeater!

When I first looked her, two of five reviewers here won first place in their chili cook-offs. Imagine my surprise when my Italian Chili also won First Place! That was against seven other chilis with 21 tasters and mine was the first one served! By the way, I only made the chili once before to prep for the contest. I let it 'slow' cook for 12 hours till the 1 pm contest time and it was great. For the contest I added one long green pepper, one green pepper, more mushrooms, one Mild Italian sausage link. The rest was per the recipe. Comments were: nice texture, surprising to find pepperoni salami, great sauce taste, the mushrooms were a nice addition, sauce just hot enough.
