this is not Chili!!! This is a very fattening Dip. There are other chili recipes one can use. Your best bet is one from Texas.

I thought this was way too cheesy for chili. However, the taste is very good & it makes an excellent dip. I added a can of chili beans.

This was delicious.I made a couple of changes. I used Mexican Velveeta,, eliminated the stewed tomatoes and used 2 cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies. You could probably use 2 lbs. of ground beef with no problems. Very Spicy and good!

I used 1 can chili beans and 1 can black beans instead of red. Also used mexican style stewed tomatoes. Very rich but very tasty.
