  • Finally had all the ingredients at once to make this! A delicious and much lighter chili than the one I usually make with red and black beans. For less sodium, I cooked my own beans and omitted the tomato juice. I put a couple tablespoons of freshly chopped coriander (cilantro) for flavour. Great! - 2/3/11

  • Incredible!
    This was so easy to make and the flavors were so multi layered. It is amazing that the depth of the flavors came out in such an easy recipe. This is a keeper. - 2/22/10
