  • This was very yumm! we halved the recipe, but there is definitely too much water! we ended up using a little cornstarch to thicken it up, and once we did it looked and tasted delicious. I topped mine with non-fat greek yogurt and a little shredded cheese. Will maskle again! - 10/22/12

  • As an Aussie I'm just getting into 'real' chili. This is hands down the best yet. - 12/13/11

  • Absolutely fantastic! I actually ended up adding twice as much spice (I was making a half batch but forgot when I was adding the spices!) and the taste is incredible! Little thinner consistency than I am used to with chili but incredible with brown rice. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! - 1/21/10

    Honestly wasn't the biggest fan, but probably I played a little too loose with the recipe, plus I didn't have enough chili powder. I left out the green pepper, added spinach, lima beans and corn. Didn't add any water or olive oil as I made it in the crock pot. Good enough to eat, not make again. - 10/25/09

    Honestly, with all the changes you made it wasn't even close to being the same recipe.

  • I did everything but add the water, and instead of using green peppers I used 3 jalepenos, this is an unbelieveable chili! The spices send your taste buds into sheer heaven. - 8/6/09

  • Super tasty. The 12 cups of water made it more soup-like than I'm used to for chili but we just simmered it longer and it went over great, Thanks! - 5/12/09

    You can certainly adjust the amount of water to your own taste. Just remember to adjust the serving size and/or the calorie count.

    I get mine at my local co-op which carries it in bulk. It is also available in the bulk spice section of Whole Foods Market . It is labeled NO sodium, not LOW sodium. Thanks for your interest. I hope you enjoy it.
