"This is a great recipe! I needed more chili so I browned cut up sausage links and added 3 strips of cooked bacon. I also added drained, and washed one can each of black beans and red beans. I also used for the tomato sauce V8 juice. The entire pot of chili was gone! I also made the bread bowls and that was great too! Will use this recipe a lot!"
