This chili is a little sweeter than other recipes I've tasted, but I like it that way. It reminds me of the chili my mom used to make. —Jeanne Boberg, Muncie, Indiana

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 20, 2013

I made some substitutions because i was trying to keep the sodium as low as possible, used low sodium V8 instead of tomato juice, turkey instead of beef, and vegtable broth instead of beef, and it still came out really well, i kinda surprised myself!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 24, 2010

I did not see salmon fillets in the recipe. Everyone has a different way of making chili. I think the title is incorrect; as it implies that all Hoosiers make chili this way. Brown sugar should not be in chili-unless you are preparing Cincinnati 5 way chili.

MY REVIEW

what does salmon fillets have to do with this recipe. In the methods section. I assume this is a mistake.
