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).
Very good, but left out sazon because I couldn't find it. My step-son even had 2 bowls, and he usually doesn't even eat my cooking.
This is a wonderful recipe. I had planned on making it much sooner, but it took me a while to find the sazon!! The flavor is just right - not too spicy but certainly not bland. The garbanzos add some nice texture.
Great recipe! Really different and I love the texture of the chick peas.
