    I’m the first to comment!!! That’s a first for me!
    Anyway, this looks super easy, and I can substitute tofu crumbles for the beef. I have been craving chilli lately too!

    • Jon Jefferson

      We have used the boca crumbles in stuff like this on numerous occasions. They make a great ground beef alternative.

    • WOW! You got here first Bethany, that’s great!!! It’s a great and easy recipe. Let me know how it works out with Tofu. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    Looks like a great chili. It is a bit thicker than how we usually make our chili.

    • Your right John, This batch was thicker then I would have liked but I needed it for the pictures. It is usually much more soupy. I let it simmer a bit to long… Sigh! But it still tasted great. 🙂

  • Merle Gibbins

    Thanks Susan, I love chilli food, will have to try this one out.

    • Hi Merle, I think you’ll love this. Let me how it turned out when you make it. 🙂

  • This one definitely looks easy and sounds delicious. It would be a good recipe to make for a get together and it would be something I wouldn’t have to worry about messing up by burning it or with ill-timing 😉

    • Hi Jeri, It’s super easy and almost foolproof. I love it for large gathering. Enjoy. 🙂

  • Julie

    Yum, again. This looks like my kind of recipe. Thanks for this. 🙂

    • Hi Julie, It is that. Have fun with it and enjoy. 🙂

  • What a nice looking dish, I love chili. It looks real easy and I love recipes because I can not cook good meals without one.

    • Hi Michael, Thank you. This is a really good chili and it couldn’t be any easier. 🙂

  • You have a wonderful way of displaying the dishes you describe and making them look scrumptious. I especially like the one next to the Directions. The main photo, with the cornbread and the salad, is so attractive.

    • Hi Leora, Thanks, pictures can make all the difference. Especially when they are taken by the person who made the dish. :-)))

  • This is perfect for the winter storm we are having right now. 🙂

    • Awesome Cheryl. It really takes the cill off the bones. 🙂

  • Jeannette Paladino

    I love chili and it’s great for a crowd. It’s dish that you can make in a slow cooker, too, and keep it warm while your guests are watching TV and coming back for seconds.

    • Hi Jeannette, That it is and that it does. This also works well keep in a slow cooker. 🙂

  • Adrienne Jones

    Wow, that is easy. It would never occur to me to add V8 juice to chili!

    • Hi Adrienne. It really is, the V8 juice adds just a bit of savory spice. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Have to try your chili. Love chili and when it’s so easy to make it just has to be tried.

    • Hi Catarina, Aww… thanks. Let me know who it tasted when you do. 🙂

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    Sounds yummy. I’ve been wanting to make a homemade chili but just never have. I need to whip out the crock pot. I will have to wait till I move though

    • Hi Krystle, I believe you’ll enjoy this, especially the fact that it’s so easy. I wish you the best of luck with the move. 🙂

      • HomeJobsbyMOM

        Thanks!! I will have to get some fritos. I love chili with fritos 🙂

  • Becca Acker

    This sounds really good right now. Great winter evening meal. 🙂

    • Hi Becca, It is such a good wineter dish. I just know you’d love this recipe, so give a try. 🙂

  • Along Came Mary

    Theres something I just LOVE about chili with sour cream, cornbread & a piping hot cup of coffee;) I wish I had a recipe, but I buy Trader Joes Vegetarian chili, very simple to heat 😉

    • Hi Mary, I’ll have to find a good and easy vegetarian chili just for you. How does that sound. 🙂

  • Believe it or not…..I NEVER would ‘ve thought to use V-8 juice….I can’t WAIT to try this!

    • Hi Ty, Me either… LOL, until I needed a little extra something and thought “Why Not” and it became the one thing that made all the difference. It is now the only way we will make this chili. 🙂

  • I have a favourite chili recipe I make in the slow cooker which is almost as easy as this one. However, it doesn’t use V-8 juice. That is an interesting addition. I will keep this recipe on hand.

  • Chili is such a great dish, and I’m always looking for different ways of making it ( maybe not today when it’s going to be 90F!) V8 def. an interesting addition

  • I love chilli. Have never thought of putting something like V8 in it! What a great idea!

  • What’s in a chili mix? I’ve never actually used one. Starts with chili powder I suppose.

  • Rose Mary Griffith

    Does sound super easy–like I could even do it. ha! I never thought of putting V8 in chili–what a great idea.

  • This really is easy. I have a great recipe from the Silver Palate Cookbook, but much more work.

  • I love chili, in all forms! This one looks delicious, and I never would have thought to use V-8!
