Great recipe!

;)b So good! Thanks for sharing!! I did add about a cup of water to the mix.


mmmm! mine is simmering on the stove right now... i replaced celery with carrots, and didnt have tomto paste so i added a half a jar of spaghetti sauce that was just getting old in the fridge... its a great dish to toss leftovers into! i also added a can of chickpeas.


Excellent recipe! I made this for a holiday party and it was a hit. To appease the meat-lovers, I left out the salt and added 1 package of Gimme Lean faux sausage. They never suspected a thing!  ;)b  I also had a whole bunch of dry beans in my pantry, so I I decided to add a variety instead. I soaked, cooked, and then mixed-in 2 cups of Adzuki beans, 1 cup of black beans and 1 cup of Red Kidney beans- all in place of the 30oz can called-for in the recipe. A fabulous, hearty chili!


So far, it's delicious!  It's still simmering on my stove, but I've been tasting it often. ;)  I made a few little additions though- a 15 oz. can of black beans (drained), a splash of beer and a splash of lime juice.  I thought they livened it up a bit. Can't wait to take it to the potluck saturday. ;)b


Awesome Chili recipe.  I made it for a potluck gathering and everyone loved it.  I added soy crumbles and soy sausage w/cheese and jalapenos.  I also added another can of crushed tomatoes to thin out chili for the huge crowd we had.  Excellent!


Yes it was great! Very Good but maybe a little more spice?


This was a great recipe.  The only thing we added was a chili pepper.  We also chopped the veggies fairly big so it was a really chunky hearty chili. Very Very Good.  Thanks for the recipe!  :D


This recipe was really good; My family enjoys a more aromatic chili (and spicier)  :P  so I increased the cumin and chili powder and tossed a good bit of cilantro right in.
I also added some veg."not chicken" chicken breast patties.
