    This was wonderful but I substituted ground buffalo sausage for the beef and used two cans of Rotel Tomatoes instead of the onions, peppers, and stewed tomatoes (saved a lot of time). Also added fresh mushrooms and used brown rice. - 4/7/08

    I added 1/2 tsp. ground cumin, eliminated the bell pepper, and added an extra 1/2 tsp. chili powder. I also used a brown long grain rice, which increased the cooking time to 50 minutes, but the nutty taste blended wonderfully with the spicy nature of the "chili". Definitely a hit at our house! - 2/4/09

    This was great! I took other people's advice and was generous with the spices. Next time I will add even more. My rice was still a bit hard after over an hour so I'll let it simmer longer next time. - 4/17/09

    If the rice was too hard that means that you did not have enough liquids. Maybe add 1/2 c of water to it. - 6/2/09

    I will make it again, but my DD asked me to leave out the bell pepper and spice it up a little next time. She said the pepper made it taste "sweet." I thought is was good with it. - 7/8/08
