"While this was quick and easy to make, it was not a good chili recipe. It was too sweet and tasted more like baked beans. I will not make this one again."

"I added a can of tomatoes to the recipe, thought the addition of the chili sauce gave it a nice slightly sweet taste."

"The chili was good, a little too sweet for me though. I also added a can of diced tomatoes with jalepenos in it and some chopped garlic, green pepper and celery. I will see how it tastes the next day."

"I gave this recipe four stars because I added canned diced tomato and bell peppers.

This chili was very good and would make again."
