I have passed this receipe along to lots of people to. For all you vegetarians out there this is a great chili receipe. Put cheese on it and chips. It's really good and easy to make.
It's currently on the stove and smells wonderful. I added an extra can of black beans for the protein, and some green peas to make the stew even more colorful.
Delicious soup! I had some frozen butternut squash that needed to be used, so made this for lunches this week. Had a bit for snack and will serve with cheese and some tortilla chips. Yum! Thanks for posting!
