I'll be honest, I made this recipe not expecting much, just wanting a quick, healthy chili-fix. Boy, was I surprised!!! A refreshing change from the standard and perfect dinner for unexpected company. I used the hot Rotel tomatoes (all I had), and mixed chopped peppers. I served w/a dollop of FF plain yogurt and some soy cheese. YUM! Thanks so much, Tom...I'll definitely be making this often!
