I really did not care for this recipe. It was entirely too sweet. The two bottles of chili sauce were the culprit and completely unnecessary, in my opinion. I spent the entire day adding ingredients to tame down the sweetness, which, unfortunately, was unrecoverable. In summary, if you like the taste of chili sauce, you'll like this recipe. If you like the taste of authentic chili, you might not like this recipe.
I am allergic to tomatoes and thought I was doomed to never eat chili again. I was so excited that I found a recipe that lookes and tastes just like regular chili but without the tomatoes. I made the recipe just as described, and wasn't sure what chile sauce was so bought and used "green chile enchilada sauce". The chili was so delicious, and my tomato-loving boyfriend also loved it. He could not tell the difference. This was perfect and I will be saving this recipe for monthly use! Thank you!
This was great! I forgot to buy chili sauce so I used Hot Mexican Chili Powder and some crushed red pepper flakes. It was just the right amount of heat for me and no yucky tomatoes!
