    Perfect recipe for a football Sunday! I used 1 can crushed tomatoes and 1 can Rotel in place of the tomato sauce. Also went heavy on all of the peppers since we like it with a kick. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing! - 9/20/09

    My husband said this was the best chili we've ever made! A definite keeper! I made it just as written with 3 T of the canned jalapenos. It was plenty hot for me and just hot enough for my hubbie. Thanks for a fantastic recipe. - 1/4/10

    Just got done making this for tonight's dinner. Just what I was looking for, a nice thick chili with some zing! The only things I changed was omitting the White Pepper(just didn't have it on hand) and I added a can of DelMonte's diced tomatos- Zesty Chili Style. Can't wait till dinner!!!! Yum!! - 3/1/09
