    This was a great reciepe my family love it and I made it again for our Superbowl party and agian it was a hit!! I did change it up a liitle bite by using italian sausage for more flavorful mixture..I sat up a buffet with sourcream,shreded cheese and fritos and everyone made thier own bowl of chili. Plus chili is never complete without cornbread

    Tried as my first crock pot recipe from your site, definitely a fan. My husband actually went back for more :) going to try the baked potatoes in crock pot and the left overs from this recipe tomorrow night.:). I think next time I might drain the beans as it was a little watery.

    Katie, if you need to thicken your chili, you can always add a slurry of cornstartch. (that’s water and cornstarch) Since it is chili, you can always use masa (real fine corn flour traditionally used for tamales) with some warm water.

    Like your recipes but they sometimes lack serving size as well as amounts of ingredients (ie what size can, etc). Would love to see more accurate info.
