Reviews for Spicy Three-Bean Chili
"This is definitely a nice fresh style chili that is wonderful with tortilla chips. It was a tad bland for our taste so we added, fresh lime, fresh cilantro, salt, and coriander"
"I have made this recipe several times. I just love it!!! It's thick and hearty with enough kick, but not too much that rips your lips off!"
