At first I wasn't sure if this was going to be tasty enough for our liking. I kept tasting the liquid and felt it just didn't have the flavor I was expecting. But once it was done and I got the full spoon full with the beans, chili and chicken it was absolutely delicious. I love that this is low in fat and high in fiber. What a wonderful chili. The hardest part was grating the tortillas using the Parmesan cheese grater. What a mess I made. But it seemed to do the treat which was to thicken the chili. I did cut the recipe in half and got 3 good size servings. Thanks for posting. :)
