Everyone who tastes my chili comments that it is restaurant-quality. It's especially good with homemade corn bread. I have always loved to cook, and I enjoy developing original recipes like this one. —Shannon Wright Erie, Pennsylvania

We loved it! I added a tsp or two of sugar with the other ingredients. I added refridgerated salsa instead of jarred stuff, and I think the flavor was enhanced.

I made this tonight It was delicious, I didn't have the green pepper so I omitted that, and I did not use cumin I don't like it. Two thumbs up..

LOVE this recipe. It makes a TON of chili! I omitted the celery and doubled the cans of beans using 2 cans of kidney and 2 cans of pinto beans. They list the browing sauce as "optional". I made it without it the first time and it was good. I made it with the browning sauce the 2nd time and it was EXCEPTIONAL! I also make mine in a large stock pot. Put it in the oven on the bottom shelf for 3 hours. This gives the ingredients a good chance to blend..
