Look no further for a chili recipe - this is the best! Be sure to use hot paprika because it makes this dish. I add a little extra spice by measuring a heaping tablespoon each of chili powder cumin and hot paprika. We also prefer one large onion and one medium yellow pepper. I now also add 1-2 tsp of jalapenos for an extra tasty kick. We like it spicy! Leave out the extra sugar if you want it less sweet. Read More

This was fantastic! I made it for a party and I used vegetarian soy crumbles instead of meat. I fooled all the carnivores at the party! Read More

Receipe tasted just like regular chili except this was sweeter which was a minus. If it had a little less sweet and a little more hot (cayenne pepper) this would be great! Read More

This chili is really good although it definitely needed spicing up! I added a minced habanero pepper which gave it the needed zip. I also used texturized vegetable protein instead of ground beef to get the same texture as meat chili without all the saturated fat. I'll make this one again! Read More

I hated chili until I found this recipe. Don't change a thing it's great the way it is. I have made this chili several times since I found it and it always turns out great. Also it is not a really spicy chili. Thanks so much!!:-) Read More

This is one our favorite chili recipes! I love the balsamic vinegar in it. It's different but oh so good! I do tend to like more beans then meat so I usually throw in and extra can of beans (whichever I'm in the mood for) and reduce the amount of hamburger. But that's my personal prefernce and the recipe reallly is worth every star as it is written. Read More
