We thought this was good. I didn't make any changes, except not to put any of the raw chopped onion into the hushpuppy batter- just personal preference. Instead I mixed in a bit more chopped green chilies, since I had bought a can larger than what was needed for the recipe. As it was cooking and I was cleaning the kitchen I saw my can of white beans sitting on the counter and realized I had forgotten to add them to the chili. Whoops. I made amends by putting some of the beans at the bottom of each of our bowls and spooning the chili over the top. The crust was good, but I am all about textures and didn't like how all the crust underneath was soggy. This did not bother my husband and son at all though. They both ate everything on their plates. Thanks for posting the recipe, we will surely make it again.
