I made this recipe as the directions called for: my husband; took one bite and didn't like it - he didn't like the Italian sausage; my mother said it was ok but she thought it had too much cumin; I thought it was too sweet - tomato paste/brown sugar. I won't be making this again. Read More

absolutely the best chili EVER!!!! Using olny ingredients I had on hand.... I did not use the cumin, celery or red pepper flakes and instead of only using kidney beans I used a trio of pintos, black beans and kidneys. Also instead of garlic cloves I used garlic powder. This is now my go to chili recipe. Even my very picky eaters gobbled this up after insisting they did not like chili. Thank you so much!!! Read More

I did not add the celery. I also used regular diced tomatoes as I didn't have tomatoes with green peppers and onions. I browned the meat with the onion and garlic then I threw it in the crockpot with the remaining ingredients and let it cook on low all day. I think this is good but it wasn't chili for us until I added more chili seasonings (chili powder coriander mexican oregano paprika onion powder garlic powder). After I added the spices and my husband and I tasted-tested we liked it much better. Read More

Chiliville Chili Haiku: "Eek this is too sweet! Needs more beans and less sugar. Overall okay." I thought it'd be unusual to make a chili that had both ground sausage as well as the standard ground beef so I gave this recipe a try but it was just too sweet for us either due to the brown sugar or the Italian sausage. The only change that I made was to halve it but gosh 1 can of beans seemed pretty skimpy to all the meat. I'd make it again but reduce the sugar drop the sausage and increase the beans. Read More
