"This was super easy and pretty good, but a little too sweet for my liking. Was I supposed to drain the baked beans??? I didn't add all the tomato & V8 juice because I didn't want it to be too watery."

"Suggestions I have would be use 2 cans of baked beans, that might cut back on the sweetness. Use the baked beans seasoned with onion, and add 1 bell pepper."

"It sounded so good, but way too sweet. I put 2 envelopes of HOT chili seasoning in it, and the juices were spicy, but the beans were still so sweet. Beans were quite mushy also. I loved how it was quick to throw together, but wasn't satisfied with the taste."

"We also LOVE this recipe. It's nice to get away from the "traditional chili" every once in a while. It makes a big batch too, which makes it perfect for those family weekends. Can't get much better than a 5-ingredient recipe either!"

Reviewed Jan. 21, 2009

"Sorry but this didn't taste like chili at all. For the proportion of ingredients, 3 packets of chili seasoning would be much more accurate. We ate it but probably won't have it again."
