    I chose to make the chili in my Dutch oven on the stovetop rather than the crockpot. I also omitted the rice and serve the chili ON the rice. It had a nice flavor.

    Very bland and the rice all but disappeared while cooking. I will not be making this again.

    I thought this recipe was anything BUT gooey and bland. I used brown rice and because I forgot to get onions, I substituted 1 1/2 t. onion powder. Still came out great but next time I want to use regular onions. :-) I was expecting there to be more liquid (like regular chili) but maybe with "Casserole" in the name, there isn't supposed to be. Will definitely make again. Avery

    This was absolutely wonderful! I only had mild Italian sausage, so used that. So easy! So many complements! I will cut the salt to 1/2 t. next time. Everything else I will keep the same.

    excellent recipe, definitely would make again. I used ground beef and my DH added some salsa (medium) to it for a little zip---great!!! Thanks for sharing.
