My husband absolutely loves this recipe! He says it's better than the old traditional style!!! I love it because it's low in fat and calories! This recipe serves four, so you can double the recipe if you need more. This is also really good with sweet cornbread.

This was really quite good although I enjoyed it more than my boyfriend did. I put in three garlic cloves and used frozen corn instead of canned corn as I have an aversion to canned corn. In accordance with other reviews I did drain and rinse out the beans. I will make this again, especially as winter rears its ugly head. Thanks for posting!

This chili had a really good taste and made the house smell incredible while cooking. I left the top off of mine the whole time so it could reduce, because we like a thicker chili. It was actually more like a soup. I will probably drain the beans next time I make it. I got cheese to serve with it, but I totally forgot about it, because we couldn't wait to eat it! Thanks for this recipe, I will make it again, for sure.

This was great! I highly recommend this for something different. I used chicken tenders and cooked them in the broth for 10 minutes - they stayed so moist. Chicken breast dry out too fast - even in liquid. I also omitted the lime juice. Try this over Fritos with monterey pepper jack cheese. This is a keeper!
