  • Loved every bite of this chili. I'll use 1/8 teaspoon clove next time because overpowering (or our clove is very fresh), but the dish is outstanding. - 12/2/08

  • Delicious! I halved the recipe and added some cayenne pepper to make it more spicy. I also used 1lb of ground chicken instead and it came out wonderful. - 7/18/08
