  • Incredible!
    I'm not a vegetarian but at times I have made this without chicken broth and double on can of diced seasoned tomatoes. I also add tumeric in addition to cumin they work well together. I change up which beans I use as well. It's so easy to swap things out and it still taste great. - 5/9/13

    This dish is NOT vegetarian! In fact if you feed this to a true vegetarian who has been one for any length of time you will make them ill! Chicken broth comes from dead chickens. If it contains any meat product (which include geletin and many other items) you will make us ill. - 6/16/11
