Delish

Now, my new chili recipe! Did not deviate from the recipe-except I used 3 fresh tomatoes in place of the canned tomatoes. Used canned tomato sauce.

Classic Recipe

I use this same basic recipe. But I add a little cumin and a bottle of dark beer.

Vegetarian version

I substituted 2 large, peeled sweet potatoes, that were chopped in cubes for the ground beef. Wonderful!

Identical

It's the way I've made it for 70 years, and my mom before that!

Simply the Best

This is so much like my own Chili recipe, except rather than 8 oz of tomato sauce I substitute 8 oz of Chili Sauce and a tablespoon of cocoa powder. We love our chili on the spicy side - so extra chili powder, garbanzo beans and a pinch of cumin round it out. Great on a 'chilly' afternoon! Served wih OTC Oyster crackers and some sharp cheddar! WOWSA!

The Best Chili I have ever eaten!

This dish was awsome! Add some home made cornbread to the side with some Sour Cream, Cheddar Cheese, and Pickeled Jalapenos on top, and it is a meal fit for a King or Queen!

Great Flavor Chili

I have tried many different chili recipes over the years and this recipe has a wonderful flavor. I actually needed to go to the store to buy the bay leaves before starting. I was also hesitating about slicing the onions, but I following the recipe exactly and the results were excellent. This recipe is a keeper.
