This recipe is a staple at my house because it's healthy, easy to prepare and freezes well.

MY REVIEW

I thought this was very good chili! I loved all the different kinds of beans in it. I stirred just a spoonful of fat-free sour cream into my serving before sprinkling it with the cheese. It was delicious! The only thing I would change next time is that I would add the beans at the beginning of the simmering rather than halfway through. I felt they needed to be more tender...they needed to be cooked longer than just 30 minutes. I think the full hour probably would have done the trick. I might also put a lid on it to help steam the beans into softness, as well. But it was great! I would definitely make it again.

A nice mild flavored chili. This was very easy to make and I liked all the additions of the mushrooms and peppers in it. This chili is also very thick, which I like. Would definately make again, maybe with some more taco seasoning than suggested in the recipe.
