"Great chili. I did make some changes because of on hand ingredients or tastes of the family. I cut the recipe in half, used fire roasted diced tomatoes, can of mild green chilies, 1 can kidney beans and 1 can pinto beans, a packet of beef broth w/o water, a pinch of red pepper flakes and a splash of Worchestershire. The original recipe is a good basic chili with opportunity to make additions or subtractions; it worked for me. Turned out deliciously. We were pleased. Thanks for a great bowl of chili."

"Good recipes. Easy to make and perfect blend of flavors. I use diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of stewed tomatoes. My son loved it. Definitely I will make this again."

"Made it for the first time last night & it was gone quick! I halved it as there are only four of us, but will definitely make the full batch next time. Had to add some salt & added some shredded cheddar, per kids' request. Loved by a picky adult, 10, & 5 yr olds."

"Really good! This is a great full-flavored chili. If you want more heat, just add 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground cayenne. I also add salt to taste and a dash of worcestershire sauce. This is the only from-scratch chili I make."

"Great tasting, hot & spicy, saves well, easy to make. I usually only use 3 lb ground sirloin so nothing to drain."
