Reviews for Texas Chili con Carne
"This was a really quick and good chili recipe. I had all the ingredients, so I thought I would try it out. Great flavor."
"Good Chili - enough kick - but not too much. Good flavor! I don't like kidney beans and the pinto beans are perfect. I did not add as much onion - but added everything else. Very good!"
"I wanted chili to take with me to work as leftoversso I doubled the recipe. It was great!!! The only thing that did not get doubled was the chili powder which I used 4 tsp. I also omitted the salt considering we all get enough of that."
