Great Recipe!!! Made some modifications to "kick it up a notch". I added 6 oz. of tomato paste instead of 2 tablespoons Added 3/4 cup of Worcestershire Sauce. In addition to the 2 tablespoons of chili power I added 1 envelop of Chili Seasoning. "Man -O - Man Was It Good". My family and Iloved it. I will be making MVP Chili from now on throughoutthe winter and as we watch our favorite sports teams!!!!!!! Darrell A. Coleman Read More

Made a tomato based pasta sauce with italian sausage and only half of the family cared for it so I decided to use the leftover sauce to make chili. I'm happy to have found this recipe I just added the missing ingredients. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned and since I used mild johnsonville sausage I adjusted the seasonings so added a bit more chili and cumin as well. Read More

I cooked this Chili tonight with a few changes. I added sugar cinnamon yellow curry and ginger. Omitted black pepper and used sea salt. It was very delish. I also used turkey ground meat and one link of beef sausage. Read More

Had to change a little bit- added the packet of chili seasoning went ahead and threw the whole can of tomato paste in and other than that added cayenne pepper to spruce it up a bit more. It's a decent quick chili! Read More

What a great recipe-I used light beer since it's all I had on hand and it was really good. No black beans for us so omitted them but the sausage really added a new and different taste to the usual chili we have. I also loved the addition of the corn. Read More

Followed this to the letter EXCEPT used ground beef instead of sausage. It was mild perfect for smaller kids but excellent. Also slow cooked it for 5 hours. Finally a purpose for corporate beer. Read More

This is a great recipe! I used it as is to a point I didn't use any of the beans ( personal taste ) and the beer I used was bud light. To the people who don't like to use beer it was only a high note you could taste. The dish was so amazing! So I would advise this recipe for someone who wants a good meal! Read More
