    This was a really good chili...but very spicy! If you don't like heat--beware! My husband adds hot sauce to everything...he didn't with this one! We added an extra can of beans just to bump up the fiber...will make this again! - 3/3/10

    I like to cook my own beans and save a little on the sodium, which I fight constantly.

    Thanks for sharing!
