    I really liked this but it wasn't spicy enough for me. I think next time I will add a can of tomatoes with the chiles in it or maybe dice up a jalapeno. I put it over rice with a little shredded cheddar on it. Also I cooked my in the crock pot once I browned my burger. - 2/11/10

    This is truly the best chili ever. But be careful of the measurements or it will taste too ketchupy. - 10/23/09
