  • “so glad i found this.Quick, easy, and really tasty.I substituted it with a chick-pea, because there was not a chili beans.And I ate with French bread because the time when I boiled spaghetti was not able to wait.YUM!!This chili is really delicious. I think that the second day becomes more and more delicious about it so that you say.I thank your and your mother.Thanks, again.”

  • “I had this chile from the original source. I must say, It is the BEST chili I’ve ever eaten. I wish I had some right now too! It may sound like a strange recipe to some of you, but I guarantee you, once you’ve tried it, you’ll never think of chili the same way again! I’ve cooked it myself many times. Wonderful comfort food!
