Made this yesterday and it was amazing, even with the substitutes and missing ingredients. I didn't have the Italian sausage and only had one can of diced tomatoes for the three cans of stewed called for, so I added more water and about 2 tablespoons of ketchup. I didn't have the spicy mustard so I substituted two packets of Chinese hot mustard that I had saved from Chinese takeout. I had two cans of black beans that I used, rinsed and drained, in place of the kidney beans. I used 4 jalapenos, seeded and deveined. I will be making this again!

Wow. I like to add a little more heat. But this recipe is a good base to start from to add any extra toppings or ingredients.

This is my favorite chili recipe. My family loves it too, we love spicy food. I don't add the mustard or vinegar though and I add an extra can of beans, extra jalepe?o and extra onion. The flavor combinations of the sausage and ground beef are perfect! Oh, I also add more cumin than the recipe calls for.

This chilli is delicious! I made a few small changes when making it myself... extra onion, don't rinse the beans and add an extra can, and cover when simmering. I like my chilli kind of soupy because I usually pair it with cornbread. Easy to make and the family loves it! :)

I decided I wanted to try to make homemade chili for the first time so I figured I would look up recipes when I came across this. It caught my eye by the name because I love spicy food so I decided to try it. The first time I made it I added the sausage as it says in the directions but was not a huge fan. That definitely did not stop me from finishing the pot though. I decided to make it again but modified it by not adding sausage but doubling up on the beef instead and adding an extra can of beans. Much better. There were a couple ingredients I did not add such as oregano and brown mustard both times but it was absolutely delicious and will definitely continue to use this recipe.

My family loves spicy chili and this recipe has replaced our all-time favorite! Although I plan to follow the recipe exactly next time, I did have to make a few substitutions for ingredients on hand. I used half lean ground beef and half ground turkey, but I'm sure it would be better with the sausage (which would be spicy turkey sausage for us). I had no jalapenos, so I drained a can of Rotel tomatoes and used that instead. This was fabulous!!

I made this a couple of weeks back and everyone at worked Loved it. I did add a few things. 1 TBL of cayenne, (1) 28 ounce of tomato sauce, and 1 TBL of smoked paprika. This time I'm deleting the cayenne but adding 1 TBL of ground Thai peppers. I'll let ya know how this turns out :) I let this chili cook in a slow cooker for 2 days. the heat kinda dissipated . so this time I followed the direction somewhat. a half hour before serving I added 5 more ground up thai peppers. I did add half the tomato sauce.

i actually used the base of this recipe for a food challenge for my friend. I put in 3 tblspn of Cayenne and 5 jalapeno peppers along with 2 drops of pure capsasin. I also used pork mixed with the beef. You get a better taste that way. Lean and fatty at the same time. This is a very decent beginners recipe for chili.
