    Excellent recipe! Used unsalted canned tomatoes to reduce the sodium content.

    My kids loved this chili and it was a cinch to put together. We served with a dollop of sour cream, cheese, and bread on the side.

    This recipe is yummy, easy to make with ingrediants on hand and not just for kids! We're in our 40's with no children and still enjoy this occasionally. I also use hamburger and I use a TBS of minced onion instead of a real one. The original magazine publication paired this dish with a simple cheese quesadilla and I like the combination. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    We love this recipe! We do use hamburger but I keep the rest of the recipe the same. I make a double batch and freeze it in smaller containers and thaw and heat for topping hot dogs and baked potatoes.

    This is simple and delicious with ingredients that I always have on hand. I make it at least once a month.

    I added 2 cans of kidney beans and a can of diced tomato and a can of stewed tomatoes (cut up) to stretch this farther. I may have added more chili powder but taste first and see if you really need it. I don't think I needed much more. This ended up being delicious!
