    I am thrilled to have found and tried this recipe! I'm always on the look-out for dishes to serve on "Meatless Monday" so decided to try this and I have to say, it is absolutely wonderful! It's so tasty and filling, and I really didn't miss the meat at all. The slight changes I made were to omit the red pepper since I had none, used diced tomatoes, 2 8 oz cans undrained mushrooms rather than fresh, 2 cans pinto beans instead of the kidney, and just 1 tsp cumin. Loved it!!!!!

    This was great! I didn't put the basil in, because I couldn't find it. I also added a bit of agave to it. I served it with cornbread. YUM.

    This is very good, and so quick and easy! I agree with other reviewers; I prefer not to eat the gunk that they put in canned beans LOL so I added veggie broth instead of the bean liquid. I also used frozen mixed veggies for the corn b/c I forgot to get corn. I think I'm a little funny about mushrooms in soup, but that's a personal preference thing. The spice level is just right, and it is quite flavorful despite the lack of lots of extra sodium. I can see why this made Starry's Best of 2008 cookbook :).

    Delicious! And I love how flexible you can be with what you have on hand. It does make me think of a hearty soup moreso than chili, but what are semantics worth when it is so tasty? I used non-stick cooking spray to saute the veggies in, omitted the celery and red bell pepper (didn't have any)- so I beefed up on the green bell pepper and onion. I used fresh tomatoes and frozen corn. Like some other reviewers, I prefer to rinse and drain off my canned veggies, so I also added some chicken broth to sub for the liquid. This is a definite keeper! Thank you!
