This was a great chili... my boyfriend really enjoyed it. I used garbonzo (chickpeas) instead of pinto and also used an orange bell pepper instead of the carrots. This made an excellent, very easy dinner with rice. This receipe makes enough to serve at least 6 adults. Will definately make this again and again.
