I am a dedicated Cooking Light subscriber and have made this recipe many times. It is my son's favorite chili! He loves the addition of lime at the end. We use the ham hock, unlike other reviewers, and I find that it adds another dimension of smokiness to the recipe.
It is not for the new cook. It is not the simplest recipe to prepare. There are a lot of ingredients and having all the ingredients measured, chopped ahead of time helps with the preparation. But, the flavor is so worth the effort!
Great chili !!! I did omit the ham hock, and used regular tomato saucen this. Made for a great little dinner last night. The flavors are great great great.. Thanks for posting, as we all enjoyed. Made for 1-2-3 hits
Great and different chili! Skipped the ham hock and only used 1 Tablespoon chili powder which seemed to be the perfect amount for us. Thanks for sharing!
