Ratings and Reviews

“This chili is delicious and simple to pull together for a quick weeknight meal. it even passed the back date test for our 5 and 3 year old picky eaters! excellent flavor and endless topping/pairing possibilities. ”
“Wonderful. i won a chili contest with this recipe (i deserved no credit for simply following directions)! this recipe doubles beautifully, is great the next day for lunch, and is beloved by my entire family. i have made it probably 100 times. i would (1) double the chili powder and cumin if you like things a bit zippier; (2) add an extra 1/2 cup of beef broth (and more to leftovers) if you like your chili a little less thick. delicious. ”
