I do love spicy food, but this mild chili really won me over. Serve with Cornbread Supreme and chow down.

I love a chili that's not so spicy as to prevent you from tasting the flavors of all those wonderful ingredients. Sounds like this chili is a perfect match. I can't wait to try it out! Chili is such a perfect, hearty meal. Yum!

I started making this chili (almost exactly) when my kid were little. It's still my favorite chili. The only thing I do differently is add a tablespoon of sugar to cut the acidity. It's a great recipe and I highly recommend it.

Sounds great, I always put ketchup on my chili and my husband thinks I am crazy! Will surely make this one.
