I was looking for a flavourful basic no frills chili. I made this chili following the recipe exactly as stated. It was so BLAND. No flavour at all. I had to make some changes.... I sautéed in a 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic in with the meat. I then increased the black pepper to 1/2 teaspoon and added 2 tablespoons of hot sauce 3/4 teaspoon of ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon of salt 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne and 1/4 teaspoon of oregano. DELICIOUS. I guess the reason for all those garnishes was to provide the chili with taste. With my changes no need for the extra calories. Read More

My husband and I loved it. I added more chili powder and some hot sauce for a little bit more kick. And I like my chili thicker so I crushed up some saltine crackers. Other than that it was great and made awesome left overs. Read More

This is a very easy and delicious chili. Before making this I considered the reviews of other readers and decided to puree half a pickled jalapeno into the tomato sauce and add a splash of worchestire sauce. I also sauted the onion and beef mixture with minced garlic. Read More

Quick easy and so delicious that I almost felt a little guilty eating it with the toppings. Substituted ground turkey black beans for the northern and tomato sauce and canned tomatos for the juice since that was on hand. Read More
