Nothing says fall like chili and apples. I use smoked paprika to give this slightly sweet chili a smoky kick. —Joyce Moynihan, Lakeville, Minnesota

"This was an amazing chili recipe. It was definitely a change from my classic chili with tomato juice. I LOVED the beef broth and apples in it."

"Wow! This chili is delicious! I was unsure whether I would enjoy the taste of the apples, but I'm a convert!!! Not only did they taste delicious, they thickened the chili as they cooked down. I did two this differently. I used 93% ground turkey, and I added some tri-color bell peppers. I greatly enjoyed the taste of the cinnamon and apple cider vinegar in this recipe; they gave it a je ne sais quoi background note. The paprika added a terrific smoky taste. I will definitely put this recipe in my keeper file!"

"I was already in the mood for chili when my new Simple & Delicious magazine showed up in my mailbox... and I just happened to have apples on hand. I cut the recipe in half, made no other changes, and, Foodies, I heartily declare this very worthy of being the Grand Prize winner in Souper Stars contest. Bravo !!"
