I didn't have the chili powder so took the advice of another reviewer and used taco seasoning. Also we like things spicy and tomato-y so I used 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes (original w/ green chilis) which was a few more ounces than called for in the recipe. I was afraid a "no-bake" recipe wouldn't be that great. However it turned out wonderfully. Hubby could not get enough and raved about how good it was. He also asked to add this to the regular rotation. I think the ingredients here (minus the noodles) would make a good base for a Mexican chili. I'm going to try subbing out the noodles with various beans and see if I can make it work. Try this recipe. You wont' regret it! Read More

Obviously food is subjective but this did not work out flavor-wise for our family. We made one batch using the exact directions and another batch using Rotel per one of the reviewers suggestions but neither worked out as a something we'd want to eat again. Read More

I used this recipe as a base and threw in a few extra things like pinto beans and Mexican oregano. Couldn't believe how good it was for being so easy! I was really hesitant to use pasta sauce as a base for something that is supposed to be chili but it worked out great! Topped with lots of cheese and some avocado. Sour cream would probably be good too! Read More

I used plain canned tomatoes because we don't like too much heat. I did add a dash of pepper though. It was a nice change of pace for dinner and I already had all the ingredients except the chili powder. Oh I used ground turkey instead of beef without any issues. Read More

I made this according to the recipe with one exception: no Ragu sauce. It was delicious. I made it again and decided to follow the recipe and added the Ragu: terrible. Will definitely make again but omit the spaghetti sauce. Read More
