This is a very tasty chili I omitted the tofu because I served broiled tofu along side. I also served the chili on an omelet. It was so delicious. Thanks Kitten for another do again recipe

This really hit the spot. Delicious! The only change I made, due to what I had on hand, was to use canned diced tomatoes in place of the ground tomatoes and fresh tomatoes. DD even ate it even though she doesn't care for chili and I ate too much. Thanks for sharing.

This was out of this world good. I did make a few changes though based on the ingredients I had. I used 1/4 cup of cauliflower florets, left out the corn, and used black beans and pink beans. I served it with a dollop of low-fat sour cream and a bit of shredded mexican cheese. It was so amazing I could have cried. Yum! Every recipe Kittencal posts is really the best of the best, I am not sure how he does it every time. Make this chili with his cornbread and you'll see what I mean.
