If made by directions - this can be sort of bland. However, if you doctor it up - it's better. I didn't use as much chili powder, but added garlic, salt, pepper, and some SW seasoning mix. You can also add a can of chilies etc for some added flavor.
In an effort to decrease the time involved I made the chili portion over the weekend, and just assembled it during the week. I also used baked tortilla chips instead of making my own from corn tortillas (less time).
