"Do you mean "Sloppy Joe" starter instead of "chili"? I used "Manwich" and it was quite tasty and easy to make! It was the only thing I thought of when I read "chili" starter. I cook potatoes in the microwave all the time. It really cuts down on the cooking time. quick and easy recipe, thanks!"

"I don't usually write reviews of recipes if I don't follow the instructions correctly, but like other reviewers my local store did not carry chili starter. I also tried substituting a can of no-beans chili, but I found that the result (of course) just tasted like a big pot of canned chili. I like my food well-seasoned, and so I added about a teaspoon each of my favorite chili seasonings (cumin, oregano, garlic powder, and hot sauce) as well as a little cayenne to taste to boost the flavor. I also added about 1/4 cup of water since the canned chili left the mixture a little dry. Overall, even with these additions, I found the meal just so-so. I did enjoy the additions of the potatoes and peas for a little texture. I have never tasted chili starter and this dish may be much better if you're able to find it. If I do, I'll try the recipe again and re-rate it."
