    Been making this for years!

    I've been married for over 40 years and have been using this recipe since then. My mom used it before me. We usually add part of a can of diced jalapenos and I like it with some spaghetti in it, "Cincinnati style". Never found another recipe I like better!

    This is my Go To chili recipe

    I've used this recipe for years and love it. I think it is quite good as written. I like the amount of chili powder called for. Sometimes I'll add a little black pepper or some dark beer instead of water or substitute one can of kidney beans with black beans. It's a great recipe to use camping by cooking in a Dutch oven.

    Good and tasty!

    I love this chili recipe. I use McCormick's dark chili powder, which is a bit spicy. It's perfect for me, but way too much spice for my grandson and daughter. I would recommend mild chili powder if using the quarter cup required in the recipe.

    Great and easy to make

    I found the receipt great, but I added the 1/2 lb. of sausage and one and a half cup of cooked brown rice to thicken and flavor.
