Absolutely wonderful! I reconstituted dry garbanzos to cut down on the sodium. I didn't have any cilantro...but I did have spinach. I put a couple of handfuls in the pot after it had finished cooking...just to let it wilt. There was enough leftover for tonights dinner...so I am adding the cilantro when I reheat. Thank you so much for this really yummy dinner.
Wow, what a super yummy, spicy chili!!!! It was soooo good! The different spices go really well together and make for a flavour experience, that is very special. I especially liked the cinnamon in this. As I dont like celery that much, I simply left it out and used a little more carrot to compensate for it. Your directions were spot on and everyone enjoyed this chili a lot. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing it here with us, Umberle. We will make it again. Made and reviewed for one of my babies in PAC March 2010.
Really unusual combination of spices but so tasty! I tried this with chicken but I'll make the vegetarian version too. Even better the second day!
This was absolutely delicious! A very healthy and satisfying meal, especially on a cold day. The spice combination rocks!
