This is a very interesting chili. I like the addition of the beer, and its good and 'meaty' with a nice think sauce and plenty of beans. The one thing i would change however is the spices. It is very spicy (i even used about half the amount of the hot spices called for). Also the cinnamon is very overpowering. This recipe calls for 2 tablespoons, and i only used 1 teaspoon. And still, it was the spice i tasted most. It was just sort of weird, and i would definitely omit it next time.

Very flavorful... but also VERY hot! (and I didn't even have any Jalapenos!); I'll say it had both my mouth... and my nose watering

this is a wonderfully hearty, spicy vegetarian chili. i, too, would cut the cinnamon down next time.

This was really great. It was a little too spicy for my tastes, so I will tone it down a little next time.

This chili was so good and "meaty." I made it hotter by using 6 whole serano chilis and I think next time I would 1/2 the amount of cinnamon. This is a keeper!

This chili was excellent. The funny thing is I am not vergetarian. Everyone in my Family eats meat, but I thought I would try this recipe on them and not tell them it was veggie meat. We all agreed, it was the best chili we ever had.
