"Peanut butter, mango chutney and lime juice - in chili?! Yes, and it's delicious! This incredibly quick and easy - yet quite nontraditional - chili is a perfect antidote to fancy holiday meals and works equally well using chopped leftover turkey. 'Eat it again, Sam'!"

We love to try new chili recipes, and this was great! I didn't use raisins (don't like) and used an apple/pineapple chutney I had leftover from another recipe. Put it in the slow cooker for about 5 hours. Thanks for the recipe!
Ugh, this recipe was terrible! It was disappointing, because I like all the ingredients (except for ham, which I replaced with chicken), and I thought it would be tasty. It was just so overwhelmingly sweet! The taste of the chili beans did not fit at all with the other flavors. If I ever made this recipe again (which I probably won't), I would use no chili beans, more chickpeas, and little or no brown sugar. Who knows, maybe it's better with ham?
I tried this recipe on a whim - it was too weird to pass up! I really thought I had a "let's order pizza" recipe when it was cooking, but the taste is AWESOME! My husband says I have to make it again (I might try the chicken next time) and even my 18-month old liked it (although it's a bit spicy). Reheating leftovers at work resulted in a bunch of people asking for the recipe! Thanks!
As a birthday dinner, Casablanca Chili was attractively bizarre. I do admit that at first sight, this cuisine is aesthetically repulsive. However, give it a chance and these random ingredients will make your mouth water. For those sophomoric chefs Mango Chutney could be quite new. It makes the meal. Embellish. Move out of your comfort zone here folks, good things will happen. Optomism and variety are healthy additions to your lifestyle.
Yum! This got two thumbs up last night!I did make a couple changes - first off, my hubby is allergic to peanuts (peanut butter, peanut oil, etc)so I substituted cashew butter. Also sauteed 1/2 small onion, diced, before adding the other ingredients (next time might add a clove of garlic, minced, too);finally, I used 2 cans of garbanzos, because I didn't have the chile beans. This is a keeper - as others have said, don't be scared off by the ingredient list - it all comes together beautifully!
Amazingly awesome chili!!! People I shared this recipe with were skeptical until they tried it. I was even worried about making chili with peanut butter, but I followed the recipe to the letter & it was wonderful. Next time I might spice it up with a hotter mango chutney (or just use more). Thanks for a great recipe!
An unusual "chili" with a marvelous and different taste. We served it with a rice/onion pilaf that was a perfect accompaniment.
What a delicious, easy recipe! I didn't have mango chutney, so I added mango preserves, diced jalepenos, a little habanero sauce, and about 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Thank you for this "keeper". By the way, my kids (2 and 3) love it as well.
