This chili was very easy to make and delicious.....a very hearty winter soup. I left out the green chilies, as we aren't big on them, and I made my own pizza sauce, as I didn't have any on hand. I also added some tomato juice, as it seemed somewhat thick. This soup has lots of hamburger in it and was filling. I served it with cornbread and my family really enjoyed it. This chili is 4 WW points per 1 cup serving.

This wasn't bad but wasn't anything special either. It didn't have enough flavor or seasoning for me.

I have used this recipe since it was featured in the magazine. I love the flavors and also the ease of making it. Normally I add a little bit of Frank's Red Hot to spice it up a bit. I also use 1 can of pinto beans instead of all kidney beans.

Made this recipe for the guys in my fire station for dinner. I substitute ground turkey for ground beef. The recipe has a great flavor and was not spicey even after adding some crushed red pepper. We all agreed this recipe is a keeper for our menu. Will make this recipe again.

Best chili Ive had to date. I left it cooking overnight and let it sit for a few hours so the sauce would thicken. Had it with some cheese and sour cream. Delicious! It was gone the same day :)

I tried this recipie today, It's still in the crockpot but I took a little taste earlier. It's great. I used a little less chili powder (actually I used cayanne pepper) about 2 1/2 teaspoons. And I used no green chilies. I cut up one red pepper and but that instead. I like a little less hot chili. But never the less it is great. Easy to make and looking forward to sitting down to bowl of it with some corn bread.
