MY REVIEW

It ain't chili ! Flavor is interesting, can appeal to some palates, but not mine

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 4, 2012

This chili is delicious!! I did cut down on the chili powder by using only 1 tablespoon because it would have been too spicy for us. I also used powdered garlic salt and only a few short shakes because I'm not a big fan of garlic. I also cut down on the green pepper and onion. I will definitely make this again!!

My husband and the 4 children all had more servings of this. We have made it more than once. After the first time the suggestion by my husband was to make sure that the apple was mashed so that he wouldn't notice the pieces. **THIS IS NOT A HOT CHILI. DON'T EXPECT HEAT** This is a very flavorful and filling chili that is great for the colder fall days.
