I've made this twice now and added a package of original McCormick chili seasoning (along with the chili powder) and instead of using frozen meatballs just used 1 lb of ground pork and 1 lb of lean ground beef. It was a TOTAL HIT! No one could get enough!

This was really good. Definitely need to go with more chili powder and salt to taste. I also substituted V-8 juice for tomato paste. I think it gave it a better flavor and consistancy.

Made this and LOVED It! A great twist to chili and not to expensive either :D I added more chili powder because i like it really spicy and some more tomato past because i wanted it a little thicker and it turned out great! So making this again!
