My family loved this recipe. Great Lenten meal. Yes it was a bit sweet, but that is the way we like it.
I was so anxious to try this simple and healthy chili as I was dipping my toe into some vegan recipes to become healthier. But, unfortunately, I found this recipe dreadful. The acid from the orange juice and the many cans of tomatoes dominated the soup. To save the dish, I added another can of black beans with liquid, more chili powder and a can of chili. Still too acidic and sweet. Can barely get it down.
I do love cinnamon and I put cinamon in my regular chili, esp if making Cincinnati chili; however, I didn't care for it in this chili. Next time I will leave it out; otherwise, it was a great recipe.

The orange juice addition was nice but was still quite flavorless to us. I even doubled the chili powder & cumin. Ended up adding a dollop of sour cream and several drops of chipotle tabasco sauce which helped the flavor.
I admit I was uncertain about the orange juice, but the chili turned out to be delicious and easy to prepare. I did not add the cinnamon (personal preference) but I might be a big girl and add it next time. I added an extra can of diced tomatoes (with green chilis) and 1 lb. of ground beef for my carnivores. Great recipe--thanks Kayla and Lisa!

This is a keeper--it is very easy to make. Thank you Kayla and Lisa!
Okay, I admit I was a little uncertain about the orange juice, but this chili was outstanding. Everyone loved it and there were no left overs. I did not add the cinnamon, but next time I'll be adventurous and give it a try. Thank you Lisa and Kayla!
