Reviews for Beer Brat Chili
"This is a great slow cooker recipe. I used regular smoked sausage, because it's what we prefer and it was delicious!"
"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.."
"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....)"
"This was a good standard chili, not too hot or too mild. I liked the sausages in it (I substituted a Lithuanian sausage), and the older (elementary school) eaters in the house ate it well."
"Can't stop eating it!!!!!!!!!!!"
"Husband had 3 bowls in one sitting...yep, a great recipe! This will be a terrific addition to my fall and winter recipe collection. I enjoyed the different textures and flavors of the beans, and the tomato base was flavorful and zesty. Next time, I may add a bit of ground beef alongside the brats, but it certainly stands well on its own, just as written. :)"
