My daughter Kayla saw a black bean chili while watching a cooking show and called me about it because it looked so good. We messed with our own recipe until we got this easy winner. —Lisa Belcastro, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts

"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!"
