    I added a can of Big Red tomato soup, which really beefed it up. I enjoyed it allot and will undoubtedly cook it again.  -  04 Nov 2011


    I made this for a group of people in my bible study group. I've never made chili con carne before and it was only the 2nd time I've ever used my slow cooker. It was so simple and tasted GREAT! Everyone was impressed, including me! I served it with warm, crusty turkish bread and sour cream, grated cheese & shallots like shown in the photo!  -  27 May 2010


    Used different ingredients. Was looking for a recipe that was similar to one I used to use but lost. This was it and it was great. If you like it spicy, you will need to up the spices. I also added some cumin and swapped out the tomato puree for tomato chunks. Everyone loved it!  -  29 Sep 2008
