Reviews for Sandy's Slow-Cooked Chili
"This wasn't bad but wasn't anything special either. It didn't have enough flavor or seasoning for me."
"I have used this recipe since it was featured in the magazine. I love the flavors and also the ease of making it. Normally I add a little bit of Frank's Red Hot to spice it up a bit. I also use 1 can of pinto beans instead of all kidney beans."
"GREAT MEAL. EASY TO MAKE! I LOVED IT SO MUCH, I MADE A BATCH 2 DAYS LATER!!!"
"Made this recipe for the guys in my fire station for dinner. I substitute ground turkey for ground beef. The recipe has a great flavor and was not spicey even after adding some crushed red pepper. We all agreed this recipe is a keeper for our menu. Will make this recipe again."
"We have made this twice now and will defintely make again. So good on a cold winter day served with shredded cheese on top and cornbread on the side. Yummy!"
"Best chili Ive had to date. I left it cooking overnight and let it sit for a few hours so the sauce would thicken. Had it with some cheese and sour cream. Delicious! It was gone the same day :)"
"I tried this recipie today, It's still in the crockpot but I took a little taste earlier. It's great. I used a little less chili powder (actually I used cayanne pepper) about 2 1/2 teaspoons. And I used no green chilies. I cut up one red pepper and but that instead. I like a little less hot chili. But never the less it is great. Easy to make and looking forward to sitting down to bowl of it with some corn bread."
