"My family loves spicy chili and this recipe has replaced our all-time favorite! Although I plan to follow the recipe exactly next time, I did have to make a few substitutions for ingredients on hand. I used half lean ground beef and half ground turkey, but I'm sure it would be better with the sausage (which would be spicy turkey sausage for us). I had no jalapenos, so I drained a can of Rotel tomatoes and used that instead. This was fabulous!!"
"First time trying this recipe, I will have to say it was very good!! Recommend it! I left out the mustard and vinegar, added everything else .. Very good! will definitely make again."
"Very good! Will make again."
"I made this a couple of weeks back and everyone at worked Loved it. I did add a few things. 1 TBL of cayenne, (1) 28 ounce of tomato sauce, and 1 TBL of smoked paprika. This time I'm deleting the cayenne but adding 1 TBL of ground Thai peppers. I'll let ya know how this turns out :) I let this chili cook in a slow cooker for 2 days. the heat kinda dissipated . so this time I followed the direction somewhat. a half hour before serving I added 5 more ground up thai peppers. I did add half the tomato sauce."
"i actually used the base of this recipe for a food challenge for my friend. I put in 3 tblspn of Cayenne and 5 jalapeno peppers along with 2 drops of pure capsasin. I also used pork mixed with the beef. You get a better taste that way. Lean and fatty at the same time. This is a very decent beginners recipe for chili."
