We did not care for the texture and taste the cornbread added to this chili. The chili is also way too thick. The addition of spices such as oregano & sage just did not add a good taste to it - it seemed like there were too many competing flavors.

This is a great alternative to traditional chili beans. The green chiles and spices really add to the recipe.

This two bean chili is excellent and really easy to make. It's a keeper and one we'll be making many more times, as my family absolutely loves it.
