"We have made this several times now, and it never lasts long. A nice change of pace from a heavy tomato sauce base to a chili, and full of flavors."

"The recipe sound very delicious, but my question is how can a recipe has black beans, kidney beans, and garbanzo beans have 0 fiber listed. All of these beans are high in fiber."
