    Our go to chilli:) easy to adjust. We’ve added chickpeas and sweet corn. Are you making for many, it’s easy to just increase amount of beans you add to feed more at a low price.

    Delicious!!!!!!! Didn’t modify at all. I used all the ingredients including the unsweetened cocoa. This will be my official chili recipe

    This recipe has great flavor! I used the chipotle flavor enhancer and was not disappointed. I would make 1/2 the recipe next time as this is too big a pot of chili for 2 people to eat 🤭

    Really good... I used half the beef and beans and a little less on the onion and spices because I was only cooking for two...made plenty including leftovers. Very nice flavor!

    I thought the recipe did not have any flavor, was mostly just cooked ground beef not much chilli.
