  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is THE BEST chili starter Everyone loves this chili. I add can of crushed tomatoes, bite sized chuck, ground beef, spicy sausage, kidney beans and black beans, any stock (beef/chicken/vegie). Another spin is a Vegan; black/northern/red kidney/white kidney, baby spinach, baby kale, crushed tomatoes, fire roasted tomatoes, vegie stock.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chili! I bought this back in December and made it for the post Christmas-New Year break. Holy Batman, this starter is awesome!!! I actually added 50% more beef, and also added another can of whole tomatoes, as it was a tad too spicy for our taste. But after having doctored it up, it turned out to be a most excellent chili, in a LOT less time than my regular homemade version (which usually takes 4-5 hours versus about an hour with this starter). My husband "made" chili fries, I made chili omelettes using the chili (which is almost just as good as my most favorite chili omelette, from Billy Reed's, a great diner in Palm Springs). Am definitely buying more of these!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very spicy! May not be good for kids... I have a pretty high spice tolerance, but my family does not. I thought it was borderline too spicy for myself, and my 5 year old couldn't eat it at all. Since you can't sample it before buying, just keep this in mind if you have small children. Otherwise, flavor was pretty good and was easy to prepare.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific chili This starter could not have been easier to use or more delicious. The blend of spices was so flavorful with just the right amount of kick. I added about 50% more ground beef and beans to make a very chunky and filling dish. Will definitely continue to buy this sauce.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Starter! I find this starter very tasty. It has the right balance of flavor and spice without being overbearing. It was very easy to prepare with a minimum of fuss; next time, I will tinker with it and add beans.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sauce - Great Timesaver I'm so glad that this has been made available. I will continue to keep some on hand. You really don't have to add anything to it. I just lightly salted about a pound and a half of chili meat (coarse ground beef, labeled as "chili meat" as I browned the meat. Just add sauce and about a cup of water (as stated on the label) and simmer for about an hour. It's great. After it's done, just add whatever toppings (e.g.,grated Monteray Jack cheese).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Chili Starter I thought the Chili starter was very good, I was afraid it might be to hot for my taste but it was not and I liked it and will certainly use it again.
