Excellent! My 10 year old daughter decided that she was ready to be a vegetarian. I was looking for a recipe that would encourage her, yet not be unhealthy. We settled on this recipe to top our Frito Pie. She devoured it! Not as spicy as I tend to like my chili, but it was delicious. And super simple to make. I used about a tsp of sugar in place of the Splenda. And plenty of leftovers for chili tofu pups tomorrow!
Edit: I made this again, and had Splenda this time. I used 1/4c (half what the recipe called for) and it was WAY too sweet. Like candy sweet. Recommend adding Splenda/sugar in small amounts, tasting along the way.
Mmmm, my first time making chili and this turned out sooooooo yummy! The beans and sweet corn go so well together with the tomato and bell pepper. Mmmm! I luved the sweetness from the corn (I left out the sugar) combined with the spicy seasoning. Just perfect for a cold winters day! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, AZPARZYCH! Ill definitely make it again! Made and reviewed for one of my team partners in the 8th Annual Photo Swap February 2010.
