    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    This is a quick and simple, no-fuss chili. I am a huge fan of spicy foods, but I chose to make this chili a bit more mild to suit the tastes of my family. Please feel free to adjust the "heat" with cayenne, or even fresh diced jalapeno to suit your taste. This chili can be topped with sour cream, shredded cheddar, or your favorite hot sauce. The leftovers make great meatless burrito wraps.

      This one-pot-wonder is easy and fun to make, healthy, filling, spicy, low in fat, and guilt-free. Naturally, that gets 5 stars. I doubled the recipe and made some minor changes like most cooks based on what what was in the fridge and the cupboards (mixing in kidney beans, celery and jalapeno...). Pretty much a can't-miss recipe. Great for losing weight, too.

      I didnt put the carrot in and used kidney beans instead of black beans. It came out delicious and less calories than the recipe =)

      Simple mixture of sweetness with plenty of spice! I added 2 red peppers instead of one, & made an entire stock pot full for this week's lunch. One of the best chili's I've tasted.. love the kick of spice.
