"I prefer hamburger in chili, so that's what I used. I did not add the beef stock or corn. It was very good! !"

"Very tasty! Didn't follow recipe exactly but it was still delicious. I added green pepper and celery, 2 cans of kidney beans, no black beans. Didn't need salt and pepper. Will do this one again!"
