“Contrary to the title, it doesn't have men in it. However it is a man's best friend, it's thick, not as tomato-ey as most chili's. Best served with fresh bread.”

I know this may shock some people, but, OK, I changed this a little bit when I made it. I used four pounds of chili cut meat, and substituted one can of crushed tomatoes for one tomato sauce. But this was one of the best chilis I've ever had, and I like chili! I put the ingredients in a large crock pot instead of back on the stove. Topped the bowls with shredded cheese and sour cream, and everyone loved it.



This is a good recipe for those of us who like thick chili. My husband is not fond of big chunks of tomato. I'm confused as to why Andy used tomato paste. No wonder his chili was dry. There's a big difference between paste and sauce.



Well, it's a simple recipe, and I like the texture and look of it, but I did have to use 30 oz of tomato sauce, and I found the 3/4 cup chili powder to be just way too much. Next time, I'll use 30 oz tomato sauce and cut the chili powder down to about half.
