Reviews forEasy Slow Cooker Chili
"I made this for dinner a few days ago. The recipe is easy to follow. I used one teaspoon of already minced garlic in a jar according to my google search of measurements. I also added a little more chili powder and only one onion. The recipe came out great and my family definitely enjoyed it. The recipe is a little tamer then what i would like so i added some hot sauce to my portion. I will say the no salt is something I am not use to. And trying to add a little salt into my dish did not help, but paired with cornbread this was an ideal meal for the last two days!"
"My husband is a picky eater and he loved this chili. I followed the recipe to the "T" except I used 96% instead of 90% meat. My husband is looking forward to leftovers. Only thing for us was it was a little thick. Next time I will add an additional can of tomato sauce and small can of tomatoes. Other than that, it was great. I liked the fact this recipe reduced the sodium content."
"Made this for dinner yesterday. Changed only a few things - one pound of ground turkey instead of two pounds of ground beef, red bell pepper instead of green, one can of black beans to replace one can of kidney beans, and added three garden fresh jalapenos (minus seeds!). We enjoyed it well enough, but thought it was definitely lacking something. . . husband thought it was salt, daughter found it a bit thin for her liking. All in all, a good recipe with some tweaking needed."
