Tasted great, but I halved the recipe and made a few changes. Added 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp Cajun seasoning, only used 1 tsp salt. Used half water/half spaghetti sauce. Added in a couple handfuls of frozen corn near the end. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a really easy recipe but it didn't really have alot of flavor to it. I ended up trying to doctor it up with more flavor at the end. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a very good recipe, and very easy to make. Not very thick, but very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe for a baseball cookout last week. All who had some loved it. I just made a little addition to the recipe. I sauted some sweet onion and green bell pepper. I would recommend this chili to anyone. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Let's just say I wouldn't enter this recipe in a chili cook-off. I made the recipe in a half proportion. My first bowl of chili was watery and just seemed to be lacking something. So I went back to the pot and threw in an onion, green pepper, tomato, a squeeze of ketchup, a little more flour, and oregano -- changing the recipe all together. The next day, the chili looked and tasted a little better, but could still use more improvement. item not reviewed by moderator and published
simple to make and very tasty. My entire family loved it. To top it off we put sour cream and cheese at serving for presentation. Yummmm. item not reviewed by moderator and published
