  1. What an awesome, simple recipe!! It can cook well over 8 hours, too. I made mine with ground turkey and the beef was never missed! Thanks for the recipe!
  2. Five stars because this is very easy really tasty super economical can feed a crowd and makes great leftovers. By the time all the ingredients were added my 4-quart crockpot was completely full.

  8. This is a nice recipe for the winter! I like to use black beans instead of chili beans and ground turkey instead of beef. Yummy!
