"Going to try this one out with some mafalda pasta instead of bow tie noodles. Just baked some homemade bread and plan to cook this up and serve them together for dinner tonight. Glad there isn't any chili powder in this one, since I'm not a big fan of spicy! (that's usually something I end up omitting anyways)"

"This is the second recipe I have found today that has Chili in the title yet there was no chili powder in the list of ingredients. This makes me reluctant to try any of your recipes. Where are your proofreaders?"

"I liked the flavors of this casserole but I used chili beans, corn, and green peppers. As a quick fix you could add chili packet seasoning ."

"My husband said this was a keeper. I added 1 teaspoon of chilli powder to it also. My grand children had it for lunch and loved it."

"I added a little more garlic powder and served it with biscuits. My husband and I really enjoyed this dish and I wil be making this dish again. It's a great dinner for a clod, wintery evening."

"I followed the directions exactly and just before I served the dish 10-30-09 to my family, I realized their was no Chili powder listed as an ingredient. I took a taste test and it was bland. So, I added a tablespoon of chili powder to the dish and waited another ten minutes for the flavor to soak in. Only my husband (who eats almost anything) took seconds. I will not make this recipe again!!"

"I love any hearty chili recipe. A great variation for this is to stir 1 c. sour cream into the noodles. Layer chili mixture and noodles in a casserole dish, top with some shredded monterey jack or cheddar and bake at 350 degrees to get hot and bubbly....about 20 min. Great pot luck dish or meal for a friend who needs a hand."
