I used this recipe as an outline. I added green and red pepper a little bit of cayenne and garlic clove. It turned out great. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I cook lunch for 30 people everyday. This recipe was quick and easy!!! Which makes my job easy. You can't please everyone but noone complained they said it was different than any other chili they had and enjoyed it. You need a little hot sauce though if you like it spicy. I also added a bell pepper and let it simmer for an hour to make it tender. Read More

Quick and easy. I am always interested in new chili recipes because I'm trying to find one that my family will like. Mission accomplished! My 8 year old son asked for a second helping. I used canned beef chunks instead of prepared stew I think that was the ingredient that closed the deal! Thanks. Read More

This was a rather odd chili but good-tasting. I wasn't sure of the purpose of the beef stew nor the brand/kind so I added one large can of Dinty Moore. I also substituted V8 for the tomato juice but put half of the amount called for (one 11-oz can) as I like my chili thicker. It was ready in the 30 minutes that my cornbread took! Read More

I made this for my family and we loved it. I suggest that you make this for a large group. It makes a lot and it is very filling. I will definitely make this again. Read More

VERY simple... this was my first attempt at chili and i wasn't totally faithful to every element of it...but using the premade stew totally worked... I'd suggest getting a saltier stew or using alot of seasoning on the ground beef the spiciness was easy to get but i thought i could have flavored the meat more... awesome recipe will definately try again thanks!

Recipe wasn't bad but there is no way you would use a 64 oz. bottle of tomato juice. I used a 46 oz. can and it was good and juicy. Read More
