A great change from regular tomato based chili. This doubles great!

Top Review by Chef Jean

The flavor was great. I loved that it wasn't tomato based. It was a little heavy on the beans for me, but that could have been my fault. Next time I'll use less beans and more veggies. But it wonderful. I posted a pic of it.
