I increased the amount of bell pepper and garlic and used all black beans. I did end up throwing everything in the crockpot and letting it cook on low all day. After simmering in the crockpot for a while and then tasting, I did increase the cumin, oregano and I added a good amount ground coriander. This made enough for three dinners--one of chili and corn dog muffins, one for Black Bean Enchiladas for later this week and one portion to freeze for a later date. Decent chili recipe that was not only quick for me to prepare but relatively inexpensive to make. Read More

This was really good and will become my new go-to chili recipe. It has a nice flavor and is hearty. I made a couple of small changes - I used just one can of diced tomatoes which I didn't drain, I also used pinto beans instead of kidneys but I could see using any combo of great northern, pinto, black, or kidney beans with this. I didn't have tomato or vegetable juice so I substituted water, I added an additional 1/2 tsp. salt and also a bay leaf. Next time I think I'll try adding a can of spicy V-8 juice for a little more kick. I served this with warm tortillas and butter but usually serve cornbread when we have chili. Read More

Very easy to put together. I didn't drain the tomatoes as I didn't see the purpose as it is usable juice :-). Yummy results and warm feeling coming home from work and smelling it in the crockpot :-) Read More

Just made this recipe and it was pronounced delicious by my husband and me. I left out the tomato juice/vegetable juice and it was still plenty juicy. I didn't really measure the spices and herbs, but used them all - wonderful flavor! Read More

We made a few adjustments. Instead of juice we added about 2cups of water, 1/2 cup of salsa and 1 jalapeño. We like our chili soupy and spicy :) it was yummy. Next time I think we'll substitute the ground beef for ground turkey. Read More

I cut the recipe in half. I didn't have tomato or vegetable juice so I left the juice in from the canned tomatoes and added the tomato sauce (again 1/2can). I didn't measure out the chili powder but I still used atleast 3 tbsp and 1 tbsp (again I didn't measure) of ground cumin. I seasoned my meat w some salt, pepper, red wine, onion and garlic powder and adobo. Also added some red pepper flakes to spice it up. I didn't do any extra vegetable oil I just sautéed the onions with the hamburger. I didn't have any bell pepper so I omitted it. This was very delicious and I honestly don't typically eat chili but with the cold weather I had been craving some. My son even went back for a second helping! Read More
