This delicious recipe is easy to prepare and very satisfying. It's also great for my South Beach Diet. It's based on a recipe in Martha Stewart's Every Day Food magazine, but slightly modified.

Very good chili. I used olive oil instead of the canola. I also didn't have jalapenos on hand, and therefore subbed green pepper. I added a couple of large spoonfuls of Salsa Fresca #72744 while sauteing the onions and green peppers. We did not garnish with sour cream, but did serve the chili with corn bread. Very easy and wonderful flavor.

Delicious. Great comfort food. Added a little bacon and some celery. Left out the cilantro as a matter of personal taste. Quick and easy to prepare. Will be doing this one again. Thanks, Nan.

My family liked this a lot and it was easy to prepare. I substituted canned Navy beans and saved the minced jalapenos to sprinkle on top with the cilantro for the adults as my DDs don't like things too spicy.
