I cannot thank you enough for posting this! What a healthy and delicious dish! I used 1/2 green and 1/2 red pepper and substituted black beans for the pinto beans, I also used dried kidney beans instead of canned. I also used brown rice. This is a new family favorite that I will make time and time again. Thank you.

I found this to be one of the best vegetarian chili recipes I've tried. Even better, it was very fast and easy.

Excellent! I did change some things and it was still awesome. I didn't use the rice and put less water in it...about 2 cups instead..but I may need to lower it to 1 1/2 cups because it was still a bit soupy. It isn't real spicy which is perfect for us! Kudos on the chili recipe.
