This was super great chili! I have my own tried and true recipe, but I figured I would try this since I needed to use the crock-pot. Well, my family flipped over it and my husband said I outdid myself! (I explained that I couldn't take the credit!) I used small white beans and light kidney beans for the puree. I didn't put them in the blender, instead I put them in the crock-pot first and mushed them up with a potato masher. I love this part of the recipe, because my family is getting more fiber and they don't have a clue! I have never used cumin or coriander and was worried they might be too strong but the chili tasted like...well...Chili! Thanks so much for sharing! P.S. I used 2 lbs. of ground beef...otherwise, didn't change a thing. NOTE: The spice mix makes enough for at least two batches of chili.
