What's nice about this recipe is that you can add any extras (like chopped bell peppers or sliced fresh mushrooms) to make your own specialty. I only get the best reviews when I serve this chili. - Ginny Puckett, Lutz, Florida

"I prepared this recipe for our lunch today and it was delicious. I cooked it in the slow cooker on high for about 3 1/2 hours and it was done. We will have this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"My family thoroughly enjoyed this chili! It only took half of the cook time, which was nice because the smell teased me the entire time it was cooking:) I served it in bread bowls and topped with the cheddar cheese, as well as some sour cream. Will definitely be making this meal over and over again!!"
