MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2014

Added a pint jar of undrained canned tomatoes from the cellar instead of the plain water. Also added 8oz mushrooms & sauteed them with the meat and other veggies. Put the garlic in the pot after I drained the meat... otherwise all of that good flaver drains off. It's a good chili recipe!

Reviewed Jan. 22, 2013

I fry my pepperoni to get the grease out and drain on paper towels, I wonder if this would work in this chili?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 10, 2012

I made this tonight and it was great! I used a 1/2 lb. of turkey sausage and only 1 lb of ground beef and 1/2 the pepperoni and it was perfect for us!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2012

This was much better the 2nd day (as chili usually is!). The pepperoni ended up adding a lot of grease to it. I might not add as much pepperoni next time.
