I added 1 tsp salt and used 1 1/2 tsp of sazon completa since goya sazon was not readily available. my friends are asking for the recipe!

This was the best chili ever. I didn't use garbanzo beans, but I used red kidney beans. I also took the sausage out of the casings before cooking it. I would make this again!!!

My husband and teenaged son loved this chili. My husband said it was so tasty and unique that it should be entered in a chili cookoff. The only changes I made were to double the bacon to 6 pieces and to use Spanish chorizo, not Mexican, because that's what I had on hand. Because I don't eat meat, I can't personally comment on the chili's taste, but based upon my family's reaction, I'll definitely be making this chili again. A very nice accompaniment to it is Sue L's Chilean Rice (#82167).
