A co-worker of mine use to bring this to lunch and it smelled so good. I finally asked her for the recipe and I have been making it ever since. It is healthy and addictive to boot!

Really good, but could be better! I added more spice but it was still a little bland for me. I'd recommend using more veggies to add more texture.

I saw this recipe and though I wanted to make it as stated, I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand. I did have other items so here are the changes I made. Subed the Condensed Tomato Soup & Water for 24 oz of Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato soup. I also used Red Pepper instead of Green Pepper, I lowered the Chili Powder to 1/2 tsp and added 1/2 tsp of Ground Chipotle Chili Pepper and last I hate Kidney Beans so I used Black Beans instead. I also thought the black beans would enhance the smokey flavors from the chipotle, cumin & roasted red peppers. We really enjoyed this.

We really liked this for supper tonight - hubby said was a keeper. I made it yesterday while cooking something else for us to eat - I knew we would be rushed for dinner tonight. Used red bell peppers, since that is what I had on hand. Used New Mexican Chili Powder ( More kick ). Tonight I added some cheddar cheese shreds on top after re-heating a bowl for each of us in the oven. We added some Paula Deen Spice Mix to it at the table and it was Just Right! Good recipe - and as hubby said - A Keeper!
