Reviews for Black Bean-Tomato Chili
"The orange juice addition was nice but was still quite flavorless to us. I even doubled the chili powder & cumin. Ended up adding a dollop of sour cream and several drops of chipotle tabasco sauce which helped the flavor."
"I admit I was uncertain about the orange juice, but the chili turned out to be delicious and easy to prepare. I did not add the cinnamon (personal preference) but I might be a big girl and add it next time. I added an extra can of diced tomatoes (with green chilis) and 1 lb. of ground beef for my carnivores. Great recipe--thanks Kayla and Lisa!"
"I admit I was uncertain about the orange juice, but the chili turned out to be delicious. Everyone loved it and no one could identify the "secret ingredient". I did not add cinnamon (personal preference) but I might be a big girl and try it next time. I added 1 lb. of ground beef for my carnivores and an extra can of diced tomatoes with green chilis. This is a keeper--it is very easy to make. Thank you Kayla and Lisa!"
"Okay, I admit I was a little uncertain about the orange juice, but this chili was outstanding. Everyone loved it and there were no left overs. I did not add the cinnamon, but next time I'll be adventurous and give it a try. Thank you Lisa and Kayla!"
