    Our favorite Chili

    We cut the onions and peppers really tiny (so we don't notice them). I add 1/4 cup of Moore's Buffalo Sauce right after the meat is done cooking. Then I add another 1/4 cup of buffalo sauce while the whole thing is simmering. If it's too spicy, you can add a little bit of ranch powder.

    Family Favorite - V8 Chili

    This is a long standing family favorite. I used to make it as the directions say, but lately I've been adding about 1 1/2 chopped up Gala apple. It adds just a bit of sweetness and haven't had a complaint yet ;-) I make it with elbow macaroni and top the mac off with the chili.... it is so good and is a welcome change from the standard rice or mashed potatoes. I also simmer it for about 1/2 hr. or so, until the apples soften some and blend in with the other ingredients. Definitely a keeper and it's always a requested dish for family get togethers.

    I had to add a lot to this recipe

    The review as is is terribly bland...I had to add tomato paste, fresh garlic, ALL KINDS OF SEASONINGS, ketchup, and tomatoes. If you are not big on flavor, this may work for you. I will be searching for another recipe.

    Contest winner!

    I used this recipe and tied for third place in my church's Chili Cook-Off! OK, there were only seven entries, and kids were the judges, but still! LOL. Per the online comments, I added 1 bag of frozen corn, a can of refried beans and also fresh cilantro. I used pre-cooked, smoked turkey. I cooked everything in a Crock-Pot. The church sold the chili entries for $1 a bowl and by the time I arrived to pick up my Crock-Pot, it was almost all gone. Back at home, my children devoured the rest, served with the cornbread I made.

    Excellent recipe, delicious meal

    My favorite recipe.. I like to use Campbell's tomato soup instead of the Vegetable juice. I usually use beef but turkey is good. White or yellow rice is a good side dish. I put a helping of rice in a bowl and then add the chili on top. Mmmmm good.
