Valerie's Review REVIEW: October 10, 2013 This is a great basic chili recipe. You can definitely build on it if you wish or eat it as is - it's delicious just the way it is.

I love this recipe! Every time I make it, my family asks for more. This is going to be my Super Bowl meal!!!

Turned out perfect. I will definitely make this again. Might try with a combo of ground pork and ground beef too! Pretty foolproof recipe it seems.
Mr.D. October 17, 2014 REVIEW:
This is a very good basic chili.. I added another can 15.5oz of Black beans with the Red beans, (1) chopped Green pepper, 2.5lbs of beef. I used the recommended 6oz of tomato paste and added (1) 12oz can of tomato sauce and 12oz of water.. (I don't like it real thick but not soupy either)... Turns out perfect.... Also I added brown sugar instead of regular sugar and a full cup of chopped onions. And last I add a little heat with 1/2 Tablespoon of Cayenne pepper
I let everybody "Heat It Up" to their taste by providing Tabasco pepper sauce, Cholula hot sauce, and Trappey's Hot pepper Vinegar sauce when it's time to dig in.... It's always gone buy the end of the 3rd quarter of any collage football game were watching.... Great Stuff.. Don't forget the Saltine Crackers, Shredded Cheese, Sour Cream, and sliced Jalapeno peppers... They'll love you forever... ENJOY!

Very simple but very good. It's a thick chili which I like but if you want thinner add tomato sauce instead of the paste.

Doubled the recipe and put it in my largest crock pot. We had a big group of people over and I thougth they were going to lick the crock pot clean! Excellent chili, I highly recommend it.

Used red hot chili beans in sauce & added some red pepper flakes.
Momma Kat November 27, 2012 REVIEW:
Everything about the recipe was great EXCEPT it was too thick. All I added was a second can of kidney beans-undrained and a small can of tomato sauce and then filled the can with water 1 1/2 times. Now the chili is FANTASTIC!! Just the way my family likes it!!

This is a great basic chili. I don't like beans so I got rid of those, and I added corn (canned) and grean beans (canned). I also doubled the recipe and used the meat to make tacos, nachos, and a beef dip (just ad cheese and salsa mix and heat in the microwave).
Very good, and highly adaptable recipe.

Instead of the regular tomatoes I add the kind with green chiles and then toss in some jalapenos too. Good recipe!

I made this for dinner for my parents and boyfriend tonight and everyone loved it. It was all gone, no leftovers.
I did a couple of things different. I did half pork and have beef for the meat. I also substiuted one can of kidney beans for pork and beans. The changed worked well.

A little bland, but very tasty otherwise.
CDKitchen Staff Reply: The recipe here actually contains less chili powder than I use - only because I figured most readers could adjust it to taste. Personally, I like my chili on fire - I also add hot sauce to it!
