Reviews for Three-Bean Taco Chili
"Yes! This chili tastes like it has simmered all day! Perfect. Made twice. Followed directions except added only 1 cup of water. We like thick chili. Great as a chili or over top of chips and cheese. Nice, hearty chili with full flavor."
"Super quick and easy to make. I did change it a little. I only used 1 lb of ground beef and one cup of water. I also used Italian diced tomatoes (diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano) instead of regular diced tomatoes. Turned out perfectly. Really good with corn chips or corn muffins."
"This is my favorite chili recipe"
"I've made this many times! Love that it makes so much."
"This is now our favorite recipe for chili. Nice combo of tacos and chili and easy to make. I added onions and garlic also. YUM"
