This spicy dish is very flavorful but if you don't like it too spicy cut down on the chili.

Despite the only rating this got, I decided to make this. I didn't mind the look, and the taste was very good! Unfortunately, I forgot to cut down on the chili, so it came out VERY spicy. (That was the first time I made it.) I made it one other time, and did about half the chili. My dad enjoyed a lot because he loves spice, however my mom and I still thought it was a little hot. Overall, though it was very good. I might make it again tonight. Also, I chose to use chicken stalk instead of water, and chicken instead of beef or lamb. It was a little watery, but a little flour took care of that! Thanks Bergy!
