"This was tasty and fast. I used Mexican tomato sauce w/jalapenos instead of the diced tomatoes. I also used a little shake of chili flakes instead of chili powder. I omitted the cumin as I didn't have it and it all came out delicious!"

"This was a little "bland" for my husband, so I altered it a little. I swapped out the diced tomatoes for Rotel Medium diced tomatoes. He liked it very much, but still thought it could be a little spicier."

"I made this recipe with hamburger once it was very good. The next time I subtitled the hamburger with hot Italian sausage, made it a little spicier."

"This is great easy basic recipe for chili that tastes wonderful. Great for 2 people or a family of 3. I made it for my boyfriend and myself and had a good extra serving leftover. I served with cornbread, super yummy! :)"
