The first time I made this, it won first prize at a chili cook-off. It takes just minutes to mix together, and the slow cooker does the rest. It's often requested by friends and family when we all get together. -Melissa Webb Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota

"I have made this several times. If you are looking for a homemade chili, this may not be for you, but it's a great "quick to put together" crock pot meal."

"Attn: morebiscotti ... Check the source of this recipe. It's from our Quick Cooking... so it's not indicative of the typical recipe you'll find here."

"I'm sorry but a bunch of canned goods is NOT what I call home cooking. I thought this site was about making food the REAL Way, from scratch."

"This chili was ok, but I didn't care for the taste of the barbecue sauce in it. Also, when I added the canned turkey chili, (I added 2 cans) as I couldn't find turkey chili with beans, so I added turkey chili (minus the beans) and I'm glad I did, or there would of been too many beans in this chili, and not enough meat. I recommend adding 1 lb. of cooked turkey to this recipe, (it needs more meat) and be sure to add 2 cans of the turkey chili, but with out the beans. The kidney beans and chili beans are enough beans for this recipe. If I decide to make this again, I will skip adding the barbecue sauce, and add some chopped onion, and add whole tomatoes, (cut-up) rather than adding diced canned tomatoes (it's just a preference). One more thing, I did not cook this on high for 4 hours, but rather on low between 5-6 hours. The 4 hours on high I think would of scorched this chili."
