I made a half recipe of this, but wish I had used the full amount of spices-we felt the dish was under-seasoned for our tastes. I was also not happy with the taste and texture after that final 10 minutes of cooking (I often cook my chili for a couple of hours) so cooked it a further 20 minutes. A good slug of tabasco lifted the flavour and I think some fresh coriander would also give the dish a boost. Thanks for posting a recipe that has plenty of promise though.
