Camp Chili Reviews

  • Three cheers Peter We loved this but I did make a few changes: First, I halved the recipe. Second, while browning the onions/garlic/beef, I added a good dash of all-season salt. Then, when it came time to add the beans/tomatoes, I omitted the kidney beans (none available) BUT I added a 15oz can of tomato sauce, and a couple good shakes of paprika and cumin. Once you let this simmer - it thickens nicely and the flavors are GREAT We didnt serve over rice b/c we thought it was great w/out it BUT we did sprinkle some sharp cheddar cheese over our bowls to melt. Great recipe and with the small changes I made - I will definately make this again...esspecially at our cabin this fall Good & hearty Thanks

  • Added some seasonings for personal preference and stopped short of adding the rice. Good flavor.

  • I love this recipe - simple, and versatile: witness the variations mentioned in various reviews here. It produces a rich and thick chili, with just the right flavor that you can spice up - or not - according to your taste. For me, its great as is. Its also great when I decide to spice it up and make it hot with some hot sauce and hot pepper flakes. Its a great treat that can be adapted to anyones taste. Bravo I love it and encourage everyone to try it

  • I have made this three times now at home in my crock pot and boy is it a favorite to everyone. It is easy to prepare and make and it tastes great too. Great recipe. I recommend it highly.

  • It is ok. I have had better. Granted I changed the recipe a little. I didnt put in as much onion, cause I thought that three onions sounded like a lot. And I cut back on the chili powder as well, knowing that my 4 year old would probably want to try it at some point.

  • I thought this was pretty good. I didnt have any pork and beans, so I added baked beans instead. I liked the taste, but my husband didnt.

  • Had this along with grilled hotdogs. It was great. I added more tomatoes and paste. I also added a couple hot dried peppers, to put a bit more spice to it.Very GoodT. J.

  • I happened to have some pork and beans around the house and didnt know what to do with them because they dont taste that great out of the can. So I followed this recipe and made chili for the first time. It was so good The only downside is that the recipe produces a bland chili, so I added extra red pepper powder, cumin, cocoa, cinnamon, and paprika.

  • I did some minor adjustments to this great chili but overall everybody loved it.

  • Wasnt well liked by our family. The baked beans were too sweet.

  • It was good, not great. If you want spice, throw in a couple hot peppers. Bland but good.

  • Really tasty, I didnt serve it over rice but instead served it in a sour dough bowl and it was a BIG hit in my household.

  • Very bland chili.

  • Wasnt bad for a first try at chilli

  • Fun recipe

  • My family and myself always eat allot of chili, but this recipe gave it a different twist. My wife and my daughter could not get enough of it on their first serving. We finished up the chili in one night. Excellent Chili

  • Wow. So good. I added in a chopped jalapeno pepper. Very nice.

  • Not a chili for sure... its more like a red beans and rice soup or an odd type of Gumbo. And for the people throwing in Baked Beans? Odd, dont you think? Why rate a recipe if you cannot follow instructions and why give something 5 stars if youve changed just about everything? You are rating your own recipe at that point and not this one.
