Thanks Mercy, I could not stop "tasting" it , did need more spice and that did the trick. Loved it HelenFl.

Wow! Hubby has recently been advised to change to a lowfat diet. I found this and the whole picky bunch loved it. We did added 16 ounces of diced ham steak to the pot to changed it up a bit.

Very easy to make. Overall we thought this was good, but I was surprised to find that this wasn't at all spicy, and was actually kind of bland. I even left the chipotle chili in instead of removing it. We added more cumin to it, along with black & cayenne pepper. Thank you for posting this!
