Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Contrary to the title, it doesn't have men in it. However it is a man's best friend, it's thick, not as tomato-ey as most chili's. Best served with fresh bread."

Dh loves this! Made it tonight thanks to the cooler weather and it was a big hit - as per the other reviews, I used 2.5-3 lbs hamburger, 2 15-oz cans of tomato sauce, then filled one of the can...

I like this chili a lot. I froze some of the leftovers and used them for chili cheese fries and on baked potatoes later.

3/4 cup of chili powder... were you kidding? You must buy in bulk:-) This recipe has so much meat and veggies it was dry so I added more liquid. To start with I used 29 instead of 20 ozs of t...
