Nice combination of ingredients except instead of just any 'spicy ' sausage try Chorizo this is a spicy mexican sausage and for the beans try 'Brooks' hot chili beans... these two ingredients will put your chili over the edge... Read More

I used pork chorizo. My husband really liked it but I didn't really care for it. I did enjoy the black olives but overall the flavor wasn't Wow. I also prefer more beans in my chili. Good for people who prefer a meatier chili with a spicy kick. Read More

Great flavor and so easy too. I used 2 lbs of pork chorizo instead of the sausage. I used 2 cans of tom sauce and 1 can of diced tomatoes. I used cannelini (white kidney beans) 2 cans instead of the 1 can of red beans. It was thick and yummy but not to dry. Read More
