Pretty Good

Easy to Make

- Kar Edel from Northern NJ

Kid Tested and Approved

With the cold weather, my husband wanted chili and this was a hit. My son wanted to help and ended up doing most of the cooking (I had to do the cleanup of course). Everyone approved and we will definitely make this again.

I had never made chili and all I can say is that we will be having this on Super Bowl Sunday. So easy and sooo delicious, we loved it.

Excellent and Easy

This was excellent chili and SO very easy. I didn't add the bouillon and it was plenty salty. I also added some green pepper to the onion and garlic. The chili was colorful and delicious!
