"I had a crock pot chili recipe that produced unsatisfying results for me. This recipe was similar, so I adjusted the first one with this recipe and it turned out wonderful. I used shredded cheddar cheese as my garnish though. Will definitely make again!"

"I used V -8 in place of the tomato juice, increased the chili powder to 2 teaspoons and the cumin to 1 teaspoon. I omitted the pepper sauce, and served it topped with grated cheese. Excellent."

MY REVIEW

"This recipe was really good and easy to prepare. My one criticism is that in the ingredients, it doesn't specify CANNED kidney beans. I suppose if you thought about it, you probably wouldn't use dried beans when the cook time is 20 minutes, but that's what my husband and I did the first time we prepared it. Notto worry though, it was fine after it simmered for another hour or so. :-)"
