"Wonderful recipe! I love the fact that it's simmered in a crock pot. I used ground beef and substituted a combination of chili powder, cumin and kosher salt for the chili seasoning mix. Didn't have tomato sauce, so cooked tomato paste along with the beef and onion mixture and then added some water. I had a green pepper I need to use, so I threw that in too. We piled ours in bowls with sour cream and sliced jalapenos. easy to put together and delicious! Will definitely make again!

"This was fantastic and had the whole family begging for seconds. Instead of using the slow cooker I did it all on the stove top. It was a quick and easy meal."
