This variation on chili with ham steak provides a nice alternative to the traditional chili that has been all but perfected by this point. Serve over cooked rice.

Fantastic chili to my liking it's a wonderful blend of oregano thyme and bay - very savory. My wife cant handle spicy so I cut back on the black and cayenne pepper but I don't think really it changed the flavor. this chili will make a great backyard barbecue side dish. Read More

The recipe was easy and tasted so good, but we go so sick after eating all the grease from the meat. I will make this recipe again, but I will cook the meat and the beans separate, drain the fat off the meat and add the meat to the beans and simmer for a time. Read More

This was great and full of smoky flavor. The one thing that didn't work was 8 ounces of tomato sauce and 1 cup of water. There just wasn't enough liquid once you drain off all the beans. I ended up using the full bigger size can of tomato sauce and while some like a fork stand in their chili I grew up with it being more soupy. I probably added more water than most would prefer but even then it didn't lack in flavor. This was good on its own and didn't even need rice. Great flavor but it just needs more liquid to get everything incorporated. Read More
