This smells and tastes just like Hormel canned chili, not good.

The general recipe was good, but was too bland for my family's taste. We had to double all the seasonings....we loved it however, after we spruced it up.

Delicious! This recipe was somewhat confusing because I have the original magazine which lists 3 cans 28 oz stewed tomatoes, cut up; rather than the 3- 14 1/2 oz cans listed here on the website. Well, I went back and forth and decided to go with the larger cans and I am very glad that I did as it came out perfectly! I have no idea if the error was in the magazine or on the website, but my recommendation is to go with the 28 oz size.

I made this for supper this evening. This is def. my new chili recipe. I did not have kidney beans and used chick peas instead, was really good.Also if you own a smoker...cook it with lid off. 1 1/2 hours at 300 degrees. OH my....delicious!!!!!

I cut the recipe in half and the family loved it. It had a great flavor but I think it would have been even better with a dash of chili powder

Great chili. I did make some changes because of on hand ingredients or tastes of the family. I cut the recipe in half, used fire roasted diced tomatoes, can of mild green chilies, 1 can kidney beans and 1 can pinto beans, a packet of beef broth w/o water, a pinch of red pepper flakes and a splash of Worchestershire. The original recipe is a good basic chili with opportunity to make additions or subtractions; it worked for me. Turned out deliciously. We were pleased. Thanks for a great bowl of chili.

Best tasting chili ever

Good recipes. Easy to make and perfect blend of flavors. I use diced tomatoes with green chilies instead of stewed tomatoes. My son loved it. Definitely I will make this again.

Made it for the first time last night & it was gone quick! I halved it as there are only four of us, but will definitely make the full batch next time. Had to add some salt & added some shredded cheddar, per kids' request. Loved by a picky adult, 10, & 5 yr olds.

Really good! This is a great full-flavored chili. If you want more heat, just add 1/4-1/2 tsp. ground cayenne. I also add salt to taste and a dash of worcestershire sauce. This is the only from-scratch chili I make.
