Great recipe! Easy to make and love it even better in the slow cooker! I add ground cumin to the recipe for that "chili" taste. :-) I also add a can of the mild Rotel tomatoes to it, for a little kick.

I loved it! It was so easy to make! I doubled the beans and tomatoes, and added oregano. I will definitely make it again. :P

3 stars, I'll make again, a good, easy, basic "tomatoey" chili. Nice & thick! I used 4 teaspoons chili powder because we like it with a little more heat. We like beans so next time may add a 2nd can---there's plenty of meat. I thought it was much better with cheddar & sour cream added.
