Reviews for Beer Brat Chili
"Very tasty. I doubled the recipe to feed everyone. For the doubled recipe I used one less can of diced tomatoes and added one extra can of diced tomato and chillies, and because no one in the family really likes bell peppers, I omitted them. I used one package beer brats and one package sweet italian sausages. The sweet italian sausage gave it a much better flavor I thought. When serving we also tried some with a dab of sour cream and a handful of cheddar cheese...excellent both ways. Definitely a keeper of a recipe."
"Really, really good! I didn't have any frozen corn on hand, so I substituted a can of rinsed, drained kidney beans. Easy to fix; the hardest part was opening the cans."
"Very, very good! Not to hot not to mild! Very easy to make! Next time I am going to try kielbasa instead of brats.."
"Wow! My husband loved this chili! I, too, added some ground beef. Will definitely make again!"
"Absolutely a keeper"
"Great and easy"
"Very good and easy to fix."
"Flavors just weren't for me. My hubby gave it a "B" he said."
"So good and SIMPLE!! Have made this THREE times now!!"
"This was quite different than "regular" chili. My wife and I loved it! It is very dry when assembled but all the veggies give up their juice as it cooks. We cooked it a little longer (7 hours) as it didn't really look ready at 5 or 6 hours. One of the rare recipies of the many we have tried that was wonderful exactly as listed: we didn't "tweak" anything! Well, ok, we added a bit more garlic! Will definitely make this again (and again, and....)"
