"This chili was really good. My hubby, who is "blah" about most every food, said it was delicious, so this recipe is a keeper! I had made it once before, and found the sausage flavor a little overwhelming. This time I used half sausage/half ground chuck. Perfection! Looking forward to left-overs for supper tonight!"

"Figured I would try this since I have never had Italian sausage in chili so I did. Well, if you LOVE ground beef in your chili, this may not be for you. Never making it again, it was just weird."

"Hate to disagree with you JWJIII but kidney beans are a "YANKEE" staple. Have never used Pinto, but will try per your suggestion."

"Sounds very good, but Texas chili doesn't have beans, and I have never understood how kidney bean always end up in Yankee chili. they are terrible. If you have use beans, use pintos."

"I prefer hamburger in chili, so that's what I used. I did not add the beef stock or corn. It was very good! !"

"Very tasty! Didn't follow recipe exactly but it was still delicious. I added green pepper and celery, 2 cans of kidney beans, no black beans. Didn't need salt and pepper. Will do this one again!"
