Do you need something to clear your sinuses?? This'll do it! Whew! That's some mighty tasty stuff! My general impression of this recipe is that it is an excellent and very versatile 'base' to start with; you can easily modify it with lots of different additions to make it *just like you like it*. The flavor and consistency reminded me more of tortilla soup than chili, but the beans make it chili. It would be excellent with any kind of 'Mexican' or Tex-Mex foods like tortilla chips, sour cream, avocado, black beans, etc. or cheeses like cheddar or Monterrey jack. I admit that I'm a wimp when it comes to all things spicy-hot, and I hate onions. Obviously I skipped the onions, and I also used mild Rotel and only a small 7 ounce can of salsa verde. That made the spice just right for me--very tasty but not overwhelming. I love cumin and oregano so I really heaped them up in the measuring spoons. Otherwise I prepared it according to directions and loved it. Its not something I'll make once a week, but I'll keep it in the recipe box to make every once in a while. It's good comfort food, and incredibly easy and versatile.
