For me, football, cool weather and chili just seem to go together. Whether it’s cheering on the local team on a Friday night or enjoying a Saturday afternoon of Oklahoma Sooner football with some friends, this chili is sure to score big. —Chris Neal, Quapaw, Oklahoma

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2014

I've made different chile recipes over the years but my family said this one was the best. I was a bit concerned that it would be too spicy as some of the sausage I used was hot Italian so I used a bit less cayenne, switched one can of the tomatoes with chile for plain diced tomatoes and added about a cup of tomato sauce and a small can of tomato paste. Next time I think I'll use a bit more bacon to make sure that taste comes through but this will be our go to recipe for chile going forward.

This chili had great flavor! I did change it up a bit by using ground turkey for the meat and bloody mary mix in place of the beer. Next ime I'm going tot try it with tomato juice in place of the beer.

Chili was good and had just the right amount of spice. I think next time I would do a little less beer. I felt like I kept getting a scent of beer the whole time. But it was still overall delicious
