This was very good. I used soyrizo instead of chorizo to cut back a bit on calories and grease. I browned up the meats and threw it all in the crockpot for 4 hours

This was a fantastic, quick chili. I made slow-cooker shredded chicken instead of using the ground chicken, but otherwise it was the same. And I always recommend using greek yogurt (in place of ...

I made this but the chorizo I used from Aldi was a bit vinegar-y tasting so I'd add a touch of sugar next time. I loved it and served with scallions, sour cream and sharp grated cheddar and corn...

Family hit! I didn't add the beer as previously suggested was too much liquid. Also, used a little less chili powder as I was worried that too spicy hot. Was asked if I could make it again th...

I just made this for dinner tonight. I barely ever cook so have pretty much no cooking skill, but this turned out great! Per other suggestions I added a small can of corn and reduced the chicken...

I halved the recipe, used chopped chicken, fava beans and chickpeas. Only used about 1 cup of chicken broth, and skipped the tomato paste. This was delicious! Topped with grated cheddar and sou...

This was a really tasty chilli recipe. The minor complaint I have is that there seemed to be too much liquid -- three cups chicken stock and a bottle of beer -- relative to the other ingredients...

The only change we made was the addition of a small can of corn. Otherwise we followed the recipe exactly. It's my new favorite chili.
