This was a good base but it needed more cumin, garlic, and chili powder to compensate for the flavor of the manwich sauce.

I made this with diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. I served it with shredded cheese and sour cream. It was very good.

What a simple recipe! I added a can of green chiles a can of sliced black olives. Served it with chopped onions, sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese along with cornbread. This will probably be my new recipe for chili!

Very good. I chop up an onion and add chopped garlic to the beef before I brown it. After adding the other ingredients I bring to a boil, reduce heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes to let the flavors blend. Tastes very good...
