    I made this tonight. It was easy and good. I used fewer beans (65 ounces instead of 90 ounces). I think there is a mistake with the amount of broth. I just poured it in until it was the right consistency. I also added a couple of potatoes. Other than that I made it exactly as written. I loved it! I have recently decided to lean toward a vegetarian diet--so recipes like this are wonderful finds. Thank you for posting.

    I am not giving this recipe any stars due to an error on my part. I don't know why I thought it used 2 cans of beans rather than 6! After having 2 cloves garlic, 3/4 cup onion, and 2 cans soup in the pot I realized my error, but didn't have anymore beans. So I then used 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1/2 can green chilis and about 1/16 tsp liquid smoke. I simmered for about 2 hours and tasted it and at that time added about 1/2 tsp ground cumin and a bit of salt and pepper. I cooked it the additional hour as the recipe stated and it resulted it a very nice thick vegetarian chili. It was enough for my husband and I to have for a meal with no leftovers. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Linorama!

    This is a really yummy soup, and it's easy to throw together. I only simmered it for 2 hours, rather than 3, and the results were still creamy and smooth. Thanks!


Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother - married for 20 years with a 16-year old daughter. It seems funny to be married so long since it just feels like yesterday when my handsome groom and I walked down the aisle. I love to cook and especially bake. I bake a lot less than I used to just because it's too tempting for me to have all those goodies sitting around. But give me a good snow day, and the oven goes into high gear! I like to sew & quilt, draw & paint, read, and play word games. My husband and I are total nerds -- we Tivo Jeopardy every day. :-) We all love old movies, especially anything with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart, Myrna Loy, William Powell, etc. OH - and Andy Hardy movies - they're the best!
