"Great chili recipe. I have made it several times now. It doesn't hurt to cut the tomatoes down to 2 cans instead of 3. I keep mine in the fridge for 3 days before eating. Makes it even better!"

"OMG SO good! Especially when you serve with the recommended cheddar cheese , sour cream and scallions. I have made this twice now, once with the Johnsonville Hot sausage, and once with a in-store made, local hot Italian sausage, and contrary to what I expected, it tasted MUCH better with the Johnsonville. This recipe was obviously formulated around the taste of Johnsonville, so stick with the product recommendations and it will be delicious!"

"I have tried many chili recipes over the years and just couldn't find one worth making again. I tried this one on a whim and this is certainly a keeper. I have made it several times now and my husband always says you should enter this into a chili cook-off. I follow the recipe as is and always use the sweet Italian sausage. I love that it doesn't have to cook forever but tastes even better than the ones that do. The leftovers never go to waste! Delicious!"

"This chili is delicious! I have tried so many different chili recipes over the years, hoping to find one we liked well enough to make again. It has not happened until I tried this recipe. This is so tasty and has the right balance of flavor that my family really enjoys. Tastes even better the next day. Thank you for this recipe and I am looking forward to making it again for my family."
