I tried this recipe because I don't like ground beef - I wasn't a huge fan of it (altho not entirely a huge fan of chili in general)but feel I should rate it 5 stars since it won me first place ...

This was a good chili but, despite all of the spices used, it didn't quite have the kick and flavor I was hoping for. The only substitution I made was to use Louisana hot link sausage.

I made some minor changes and loved the chili. I used 1/4 cup dried celery and 1/4 cups dried onion since I did not have regular, and used 1/2 cup red pepper since for both pepper, I then doubl...

Really liked this. Only thing was i didn't like the sausage I used but it was still really good. Also think it would be great with some brown rice.
