"Fantastic! Everyone loved it. No one mentioned that it was vegetarian. And all of the spices made it so tasty!"

MY REVIEW

"My husband looked at this with suspicious eyes and said "What is this?" when I served this soup a couple of nights ago. He was totally won over with the taste of this chili. Just the right amount and combination of spices and so healthy: low-fat, high fiber, good protein. I followed directions as written and don't think I will make any changes when I make this soup again. Served with a hearty bread, this is a perfect winter meal. Easy, healthy, delicious = perfect recipe!"

"Awesome recipe, I had already brown lean ground beef, onion and green pepper before I found this recipe. I added one extra small can of diced tomatoes, approximately 2 more tablespoons chili powder, one tbls cumin and honey. This is a great recipe whether you modify it or not!"
