"I have made this recipe three times...sadly it has taken the place of the family chili recipe I have made for years....everytime I ask my family which chili they want me to make..it's this one. If my family loves it...I love it."

"At the end of the recipe, it said to use Bush's Chili Starter. I googled Bush's products and this is what I found.... http://www.bushbeans.com/products/otherbeans.php Scroll down until you find the Chili Magic Starter. You have to add meat and tomato the description says...and it shows a picture of the product. I hope this helps.    Well, you will have to cut & paste...I can't get it to make a link...sorry.... I have never used this product but LOVE Bush's products. I use the medium Chili Beans seen on  the above page. The only beans I'll use to make chili.
