This was an okay bean chili. We used 2 cans of black beans and that made everything 'on hand'. The garlic really stood out in this dish as well as the cannellini beans. We would have liked more black beans in this. Even waiting a day, The flavor was the same and it still did not thicken up much so we added another can of tomato paste. Overall, we liked this recipe, we felt it just needs to be tweeked a bit. Thanks for the opportunity to try it.
