Wow... this was really good. I was worried because it did not have a lot of the ingredients (spices, onions, etc), I would normally add. I doubled the recipe and made the following changes:-Used half the meat (1 pound hamburger and 1 pound ground pork) only because it I forget to buy 4 pounds but was very happy with it-Used half the water as suggested by others ... perfect consistency-Used Fire Roasted diced tomatoes instead of stewedThis was easy, quick and very tasty!Thank You for Sharing.

This was great! I'm happy with how much it made too! I sprinkled broken chips on top to give each spoonful a little crunch. Yum!

Yes! This chili tastes like it has simmered all day! Perfect. Made twice. Followed directions except added only 1 cup of water. We like thick chili. Great as a chili or over top of chips and cheese. Nice, hearty chili with full flavor.

Super quick and easy to make. I did change it a little. I only used 1 lb of ground beef and one cup of water. I also used Italian diced tomatoes (diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano) instead of regular diced tomatoes. Turned out perfectly. Really good with corn chips or corn muffins.

Made this last night for supper and really appreciated how fast this came together. My only addition was some chopped onion. I used medium salsa and hot taco seasoning and it had a nice spice to it.
