My husband and I are retired with grown children, so it's nice to have a chili recipe that makes a small amount. Mushrooms make this chili stand out from any other varieties I've tried.—Anne Elsby, Chilliwack, British Columbia

"This chili was excellent! I may decide to add corn to it and maybe use closer to 5 teaspoons of chili powder rather than 4.5. If you're looking for something spicey, this isn't it. We had this in bread bowls with some shredded cheese and absolutely loved it! Other than adding some corn and chili powder I may double the recipe because this was just enough for the two of us for one meal."
