    This is the quickest thing I have made for dinner in a long time. However, I like my chili on the thicker side, and this chili was a little too watery. To solve this problem, I added half a can of tomato paste, and this made it perfect. I also added just a little extra chili powder because I wanted it to be a little spicier. Because I didn't have stewed tomatoes, I used canned diced tomatoes instead. They were just as good and gave the chili a nice flavor. I have already made this for dinner twice, and I plan on making it a staple in my recipe collection. It's great served with a portion of baguette.  -  14 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wow!!! This chili was GREAT. This was my first time EVER to make chili. I added a chopped green pepper and 2 cloves of garlic minced in the pan with the hamburger and onions.. I also used 1 tablespoon of chili powder.. This truly was better than any chili my family has ever had from any restaurant or family member.. Thank you so much.  -  28 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It has snowed 5 feet here in Denver and I really wanted chili tonight. I can't believe how easy this was!!! It was sooooooooooooo good. I can't believe it. I tastes like I worked all day on it. I did make a few changes, I only put 1c. of water, and put about 1TB of chili powder. When I browned the meat I put 2 cloves of garlic in with onion. This was the tastiest dinner I've had!
