I am allergic to tomatoes and thought I was doomed to never eat chili again. I was so excited that I found a recipe that lookes and tastes just like regular chili but without the tomatoes. I made the recipe as described but with green enchilada sauce for the chile sauce. The chili was so delicious, and tomato fans cant tell the difference. This was perfect and I will be saving this recipe for monthly use! Thank you! Read More

I really didn't like this at all which makes me sad because I really wanted to! It was just way too tangy for us to eat. Maybe it would be better to us if I just used 1 jar of the chili sauce but it was too bitter. Sorry.:-( Read More

Wonderful chili recipe! Has a great flavor that is just a tad on the sweet side due to the chili sauce. I won a chili cookoff using this recipe with only one alteration. Read More

This was a VERY FLAVORFUL chili!! I have tried several recipes from this site and always go back to my own cause my family really likes it. However my daughter really dislikes chunky tomatoes in her chili. I usually puree them in my version. This was the main reason for trying this chili. SO GLAD I DID!! This will be my "other" choice on occasion. The CHILI SAUCE beef broth and worcheshire sauce make this so special. I only had 2 1/4 pounds of beef so I basically cut back slightly on all the other ingredients. However for the chili powder I started with 2 TBLS tasted after 20 minutes and added another TBLS. My daughter can't eat it too spicy. After she had 2 helpings and LOVED it I added 1 MORE TBLS. of chili powder (4 total). The flavor was so smooth with the heat slightly at the end of the bite. I was pleasantly surprised how really good this chili was! Read More

This recipe prompted me to write my first review ever! It was excellent. I tweaked only slightly - added a little condensed tomato soup and some Old Bay - I didn't add green peppers - it was perfect! Not only did my picky kids enjoy (who hate chunky tomatoes) - I preferred to any other chili I've made as well! Read More

I really did not care for this recipe. It was entirely too sweet. The two bottles of chili sauce were the culprit and completely unnecessary in my opinion. I spent the entire day adding ingredients to tame down the sweetness which unfortunately was unrecoverable. In summary if you like the taste of chili sauce you'll like this recipe. If you like the taste of authentic chili you might not like this recipe. Read More

Excellent chili we cooked it the way the recipe called for but put it in the slowcooker so that the flavors could mix and simmer for a while! We topped it with cheddar sour cream and jalapenos and served it with crackers! I got rave reviews from the family! Read More
