This was indeed quick and easy. I served it on Angel hair pasta. It's not your everyday spicy chili, but could be if you prefer that by adding additional chipolte powder or minced jalapeno's. I found this to have a nicely mild taste and the condensed soup gave it a hint of sweetness. I followed the recipe as is - with the exception of using fresh mushrooms instead of the canned. Next time I will leave out the beans -only has a personal preference. Very good - thank you!
