2-4 tsp. chili powder, to taste

Jim's Comments:

I did this in a 3 quart slow cooker, and made no substitutions.

I'd rate this recipe as 'just o.k'. Sort of nothing to write home about.

If you're going to make this recipe, then I'd really suggest that you add the can of tomato paste as noted in the 'variation' above. As it is, it's like a chili soup and fairly watery.

If I were to make this again, in addition to the tomato paste, I'd serve it with some sort of bread/harder style dinner rolls or maybe some cornbread would be nice. I'd also ramp up the chili powder. I added 2 tsp., but that wasn't enough.

Leftovers were better than the first serving.
