While this chili smelled great -filling up the whole house- I was disappointed by the lack of real flavor. I tried another reviewer's advice of adding a cup of rice-BIG MISTAKE! It made the chili too thick and too bland. Next time, I'll leave out the rice, and add much, much more seasoning.
This was wonderful-nice and spicy. Two hours is a perfect amount of time in the slow cooker.
Wow! This was so good. I really couldn't imagine all of the flavors together, but the reviews were so good I wanted to try it. As others have said, it was delicious and so, so easy. Since we like spicy food, I did change the spices. Rather than the spices from the recipe, I put in 3 Tbsp. chili powder, 2 Tbsp cumin, 2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 Tbsp salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. My tomatoes weren't in puree so I added one can of tomato paste to thicken it a little and I used black beans rather than black bean soup. I cooked it for about 3 hours in the slow cooker. This is one that I will make again and again! Thanks!
Added another 28 oz can of tomatoes, used 3 Tbs of chili powder and 1 1/2 tsp if cayenne, eliminated the parsley.
Very easy to make. Added veggie sausages for a twist.
This is wonderful. My family loves it--including my vegetarian teen son. I call it "Cowboy Stew," though, because it's like the cowboy stews we made at Girl Scout camp. And also, as a Texan, I refuse to call anything with beans in it "chili," as real Texas chili has no beans! I made some moderations. This recipe looked more Italian to me, and I wanted to spice it up. I traded ancho chili, adobo seasoning for the basil and oregano. I used a poblano and a serrano instead of bell peppers. (And once when I made it I added dried jalapenos but did that in place of serrano.) I also added Morningstar Farms Crumbles--not that it needed any more protein. But I wanted to stretch it a bit. this has become a favorite!
