Reviews for Texican Chili
"Good recipe! I use ground turkey instead of beef and cilantro instead of parsley. Very tasty!"
"I love this recipe, I like to add a little something with red pepper flakes and hot sauce sometimes as well."
"Good recipe, but being a Texan I have to say....This is neither Texan or Mexican, much less a mixture of the two."
"I made this recipe out of my "best loved recipes" cookbook and I loved it! So did our 4 year old son. My husband ate it and said it was good, but he prefers the flavor of "normal ground beef chili" LOL... his words, not mine. I will be using this as my go to chili recipe now."
"Good recipe. I don't know why "hunters" loving it would make a difference one way or the other, but tasty recipe nonetheless."
"Good recipe! The meat is so tender after being in the crockpot all day."
"With a food processor, the bulk of the prep time is spent cooking the meat. Really easy n very tasty. My husband suggested adding some red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick."
"This chili was fantastic! It got rave reviews at a family supper! I served it with hearty yeasty rolls! There was nothing left! Excellent, excellent chili!"
"This was outstanding! As a matter of fact, I'm making it tonight!!! It's delicious and good for entertaining if it suites the crowd."
"This chili is delicious! I don't bother with the bacon and it turns out great. We have it at least twice a month."
