Very good! I added a can of diced tomatoes, used frozen corn, and used chicken broth instead of water. Great to be able to make chili without chopping veggies!

Not too bad, easy to make due to all the canned ingredients though I was hoping for a bit more flavor from it. Followed the recipe to the T but next time will add quite a bit of salt at the very least to give it a bit more kick. Doubling the salsa should help out also. Overall we're going to eat the leftovers and will definitely make it again, if not for the taste, then just due to the cost and ease of prep.

Great Chili! I didn't have the hominy to add for this recipe and it made it really hardy without it. Great taste and you don't have to have it cook all day for great taste.

This really turned out well. I was not clear on whether the beans, hominy, and corn should be drained. The answer: NO. This makes A LOT and takes quite a while to bring to the first boil. For the chicken I poached 1.4 lbs boneless chicken breasts in chicken broth, let it cool, then used the small julienne disc of my food processor. The only change: I added 1 tbl ground chipotle. I described the recipe during a radio show last night as the hosts enjoyed it. They gave it thumbs up.

I love this one. I used canned chicken and left out the water and cumin. I added a little tabasco. Even my kids ate it.

I loved this recipe although I tweaked it and used cannellini and black beans, and also used 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup Buffalo Chicken Wing sauce for liquid and used half the spices. Delicious!!
