    I have made this chili and it is by far the most simple and best chili I have ever made. I used to use the beans with all spices in them and added tomatoes, but this is so much better to me. Don't get me wrong, the beans made a great chili also, but this is so much better to me. Thank you. I love McCormick recipes. Do you have a cookbook?

    I was assigned to bring chili to a ladies' potluck lunch tomorrow and I completely forgot until tonight. Thankfully I had everything on hand. This recipe was fast and easy to make and it is very good. Thanks!

    We love this chili, it's easy to make and the whole family loves it. Also diabetic-friendly since the servings are an easy to measure 1 cup. We make this at least once a month.

    I made this twice. The first time it was bland, like Dina said. The second time I let the spices toast with the ground beef and onions for a little while (making sure to stir frequently) before I added the liquidy ingredients, and that made all the difference. The spices really binded to the meat. Much better.

    After a month in the US with my teenage boys, I was looking for a recipe to recreate their favourite USA meal! This is perfect! After a few tries these few steps perfect it.... As previously suggested add spices to the onions before adding the meat - this brings out the flavor. Also add around a half a cup of red wine and 1tbsp brown sugar to the mince before adding the tomatoes and beans and simmer for a few minutes. For Australian cooks - to create the tomato sauce I use 4 oz tomato paste and 4 oz water. Enjoy chilli on top of a baked potato, fries or on its own with cheese and sour cream!

    I added onions and green bell peppers to add flavor but it's still very blend :/ I wouldn't buy it again. It needs more spices/ flavor.
