Reviews for Spicy Slow-Cooked Chili
Sort By :
Wow! Rave reviews were coming from all, even grandma loves it!. The cinnamon didn't make sense (and the smell was overpowering) so I have omitted it in subsequent dishes, and I added 3/4 of a jar of Mezzeta pepperoncinis chopped, and 3/4 of the juice as well. It really kicked up the heat. This is going to be a staple recipe in my house.
I'm making this right now, but added more chili powder. In my opinion, 2 teaspoons of chili powder does not constitute chili.
Great recipe. Family loves it!
My family loves this. I have small children so I use Banana peppers. It is just the right amount of spice to make everyone happy. I also add a pinch more chili powder than it calls for. All in all this is one of the best chili recipes I have come across.
