I am giving this recipe 5 stars. Even though I made some minor changes. I used italian turkey sausage and a package of chili seasoning. Just like chili should taste like. And of course on my sering I added hot sauce. Read More

Yes, more onion , less oregano - but I used dry bean that I infused with garlic and cuban oregano. Served with elbow macaroni - so we could eat it with a spoon. Topped with shredded mozzarella and sour cream. I have before and after pictures. Read More

I rarely add anything to a recipe until its done. After cooking etc, it tasted more like spaghetti sauce than chili, so I added another can of beans, 14 oz of chopped tomatoes, some tomato paste (4oz) garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning blend, and some whole Sicilian “sport peppers” . After simmering and re-tasting, I added 1/2 cup water with 2 beef bouillon cubes. The original recipe was not very flavorful, and needed some tweaking. It’s MUCH more like chili, and less sauce after these adjustments. Read More

Contadina Italian Chili Haiku: "Very very rich. Had to eat over noodles then it's more like sauce." Other than the addition of kidney beans we felt like we were eating a very chunky tomato sauce over rotini; that's not to say that this wasn't delicious but it was hard to spoon it into my mouth and think "mmm chili!" to myself. Followed the recipe as written altho I think my beans were Great Northern not Cannellini - close enough they're white. Read More

I had hot Italian sausage on hand so I left out the separate amount of chili. My diced tomatoes didn't have garlic in them but I had fresh garlic on hand so I chopped two cloves in with the onions. It was a tasty hot dinner; quick to the table and used up my leftover spaghetti sauce and pasta in the bargain. I didn't use the sour cream or green onions toppings just the mozzarella cheese and some grated parmesan. Read More
