Yum!! Not only is this tasty, it's healthy and low fat as well!! I cooked this on the stove top for about 50 minutes (I added a half a cup of water) before adding the beans and simmering for a further 10 minutes. I was unsure as to what to do with the jalapenos - I ended up dicing them and adding to the chilli.Served with mama's Cheesy Pita Crisps #141428 and a dollop of sour light cream. This has a lot of taste for minimum effort. I will try the microwave method next time.Thanks Jellyqueen!
