I'm giving it five stars because it was terrific chili but I would give it 3 for the directions. Maybe it is just me since no one else complained. I cut the recipe in half therefore it called for only 1 can of Stewed Tomatoes. This needed a lot more than 1 can. I am wondering if Josh meant for us to also follow the directions of the chili seasoning and use those liquids. In any event I ended up using a jar of salsa too. What we really liked was the combination of the beef and sausage.
This is just a great recipe. We all loved the layering of chili crackers pasta and cheese. Sounds kind of yucky but is actually awesome. Like reviewer "Aspiring Chef Rita" I thought it needed more liquid. I added one more can of tomatoes (used Rotel with peppers mild) and still wanted more so dumped in the 1/2 container I had on hand of fresh salsa. I also did not drain the tomatoes or beans in order to have the liquid. Then it needed a little more spice so I just sprinkled in some additional chili pepper. One note...I just picked up pinto beans per the instructions. I ended up with light colored beans. I didn't think this was as pretty as a result. Go with the dark red beans for appearance. Yummy Josh thanks.
Interesting recipe Josh that my children really liked. My mom had her own version of 4-way chili that called for spaghetti chili canned tamales and grated cheese. Now that we can buy fresh tamales you'd think we'd use them but it's just not the same taste or nostalgia-wise. My only problem with your recipe was that I didn't know how many crackers to use. A regular box measures serving size by number of crackers and grams not ounces. But we all did enjoy your four-way version. Try mine some time. I'll bet your family loves your cooking. Thanks a lot for sharing Josh.
