Who cares if it's authentic?
It's probably not the exact same thing you get at whatever your favorite local diner is, but if that's what you want, that's what you should get instead of complaining about a recipe you don't even intend to make!.
As for me, I've never had this style of chili before, and I thought it was great. I did add some garlic and cumin to the other seasonings for more flavor and topped it with a bit of sharp cheddar. Mine was nice and thick, and yours will be too if you let it cook for long enough. This will become a weeknight staple in my house!
Pros: Easy, quick, tasty
Cons: Not enough seasoning as written
