    This was a really good chili...but very spicy! If you don't like heat--beware! My husband adds hot sauce to everything...he didn't with this one! We added an extra can of beans just to bump up the fiber...will make this again! - 3/3/10

    I also like that this recipe lends itself to substitution -- turkey meat, different kinds of beans, with or without tomatoes. - 3/22/09

  • Great Spicy Recipe! I like wimpy spice chili (and have severe heartburn issues with regular) so I just cut back on spices.
    I used: 4 cloves garlic, 1 T chili powder, 1 t. cumin, No cayenne, 1/2 t. pepper and 1/4 to 1/2 t. sugar. It was perfect for me and my mom. Hubby added more spice to his. - 11/26/13

  • I added fresh chopped red pepper, cauliflower, celery, and carrots to add some veggies for my kids. Made it alittle less spicy for them too by leaving out the garlic and less chili powder. Also, substituted organic black beans for red kidney. beans. Loved it!!!! - 1/4/13

  • Chili was great I did not use regular chili seasoning. I used one of those McCormick chili packets (hot), and I just added a liitle cayenne pepper, and not black pepper. I also added some chipole peppers in adobo, about 2 and some juice.Was great will use recipe again. - 11/14/11

  • smells great so far! i only used two dashes of the cayenne pepper and i substituted one of the cans of bean for pre-cooked lentils...turned out really well as long as you assume the cayenne pepper was supposed to be a teaspoon for extra-spicy. :) - 9/30/10
