This recipe comes from the book: "Make It Fast, Cook It Slow" by Stephanie O'Dea. It is a very tasty, not too hot chili that is just right for these cold winter days. I added little cubes (less than 1/2-inch) of 3 uncooked chicken breasts to this chili about half way through the cooking for a little more protein, as though it needs it. It didn't hurt one bit! The author says this is a soupy chili but I did not find it so. It has great flavor. She cautions that the beans sink while the corn floats. So you need to dig down to the bottom of the bowl to make sure you get beans in every bite.
