MY REVIEW

"I keep making bigger batches of this recipe (hoping for leftovers) but it never happens! We have made this recipe so many times, it has now made it into my family cookbook! It was suggested to me to try it without the chicken, and we absolutely enjoy it that way! I usually use a tiny bit of chicken stock, but lately found that just the "juice" from the beans keeps it just as tasty. For those who do not know, the whitish, thick goo that you drain and rinse off your beans is soluble fibre and it is very good for you. Leave it in if you can. In this recipe, however, too much liquid will make your end dish kind of soupy, as others had stated. Perfect for those "no-meat" meal days! I love spicy food, but I had to reduce the pepper and the amount of chilies so my kids would enjoy it too. Of course it goes excellent with a sprinkle of cheddar and garlic toast on the side!"

"I made this chilli as written turned out great. We saved some for the next day (which we add a cut up cooked potato and some potato flakes) and froze several containers for later enjoyment.

Will make again."

"I forgot to add the chilli's (but didn't miss them at all). Also added some potatoes and corn. I agree with the previous cook, it is more like a soup/stew as it is not super thick. Was a hit at my house."
