"First time I made this I rated it 4 stars, though I don't remember making it. I made it again for a baked potato bar for teacher appreciation. I doubled the recipe for about 45 potatoes (though, I do not know how many ate it) and I added a package of French's chili-O seasoning. I loved it on my potato and heard others enjoyed it as well."

"We loved this chili! So good on baked potatoes, easy, and not too caloric. Only thing I did different was to add more seasoning....I always use the chili seasoning that comes in the packets rather than just plain chili powder, and I added the majority of a packet, part of what had been used for something else, as we like more chili flavor. We then topped the chili with grated cheese after spooning it on the potatoes....added some calories, but Y-U-M-M-Y!!!!!!"

"I've been making this for awhile, we love it. Another thing we use to top a baked potato is chicken or Steak Fajita mixture, makes a good quick meal."
