Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful flavor I made this as part of my cozy meal collection and I was thrilled with the flavor. Not to spicy, with just a little tiny kick. I added sour cream and a little cheddar cheese, I can't wait to make it again. It was a hit with the family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I wasn't sure how this would be because I've never made chili with Italian seasoning. I used regular sausage, and my whole family ate it up. No leftovers with this one. Will definitely make again.
