I didn't hate this, but it lacked the hearty tomatoe-y meaty goodness of regular chili. I like a very thick chili with lots of beans and meat, and lots of good tomato flavor. While this certainly filled the bill for thick, the veggies really thinned out the flavor, and to me, adding my expensive pound of grass fed beef was a waste, as it got lost in the huge amount that this made. I ended up adding a lot more spices, some salsa, and some tomato sauce to give this more depth, only with so-so results. When spooned over cornbread and topped with sour cream and cheese, I'm sure it'll pass muster, but really, in that case, what wouldn't? Sorry, definitely won't replace my regular chili recipe with this one, and I love my quinoa and veggies just as much as the next girl.
