    Mrs. Mike F's Note:

    This is an easy budget stretching favorite from our early marriage. It freezes well for Once a Month Cooking, and makes a great big batch. My husband prefers it to never reach the freezer, though--just eat it for lunch until it's all gone. We make it with our "Parsley Pesto" which is more special. To make it vegan/vegetarian, omit the chicken broth.

      Even the carnivore hubby liked this one, very hearty. It could use a punch of flavor but that just means season to your taste. You could also use more broth and less water. I liked the flavor as it was, though.

      This recipe is excellent - very versatile. In our house everyone likes a different type of chilli (tabasco, chilli flakes, strength of chilli etc etc) and this allows them all to add to taste. Serving sizes are generous - no one went hungry! Will definitely be making this again.
