Love this recipe! I've made it for several friends and receive raving reviews every time. Makes a LOT so I freeze and reheat individual portions. Delicious!
I just won $75 in my company's chili cookoff with this recipe! It's the first time I've made it, but you can bet I'll be making it again -- and soon. I increased the spices, as recommended in Gail's post, and added a 15 oz can of black beans. Incredible flavor!

Love this recipe!!! I put everything in the crock pot and let it simmer overnight.
This is an incredible recipe! I consider myself a pretty good cook and judge of something flavorful. This is a winner and will make it often. I added an extra 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder and 1 whole extra teaspoon of cumin. I also put in 2 teaspoons each of oregano and basil and wow, what flavor! This will be a regular on my menu!

I've made this several times. I usually simmer it for four hours or more. I've made it with turkey and chicken. My daughter wanted me to enter it in a chili cookoff. I took it to a Halloween party and someone begged me for the recipe. It is one of the few recipes that I use as is. The longer the simmering time, the better it gets.

This now the most requested food to bring anywhere. It takes some time to make, but is well worth the wait!

This was my favorite! Slow cooking is the secret to it's great flavor.
This has been a soup standard in our house for years! If you want more kick, sub Rotelle toms for the canned toms. An easy put on the stove and forget recipe.

I thought this was just ok. I guess I expected more since this was a clone of the famous soup nazi's recipe, but I thought it was a bit. I expected this to be fantastic, but it was just ok.
This recipe is fantastic. I made it for a chili cookoff at church and won third place! Have also taken it to potluck dinners and everyone loved it.
