"A spicy chili if you want it to be, depending on how much chili and curry powder you add. Not your typical chili. Best if left to cool and then reheated. Serve with brown rice." — AEMACIVOR

This chili is fantastic! If you like dishes with a lot of flavor this is definitely worth a try. And, it was easy to prepare and cook. Instead of using ground cayenne pepper I substituted Frank's Red Hot Original sauce (I just kind of eye-balled the amount and tasted as I went). It's main ingredient is cayenne peppers so I imagine it made the chili taste very similar to the original recipe, but perhaps a little bit more tangy. I think I'll try adding some tomatoes and possibly play around with some peppers or other vegetables next time. I also made some cornbread to go along side of it which was the perfect addition. Can't wait to taste the leftovers!
I would do some tinkering with this to get it the way you want it. It is not traditional tasting and taste more like an middle eastern version of chili. Suggetions would be to cut coriander amount by half since it dominates the flavor. If you still want more than put in a little at a time. People have reported texture being more soupy than chili like but that is probably because they didn't notice that the recipe gives you a general amount for water. Use your own discretion: pour a little in at a time until satisfied with consistency. I found this out the hard way after dumping it all in.
it was aweseom!!
Make no mistake, this is not chili. Stew, yes. Chili, no. I added a 28 ounce can of tomatoes to this to pretend it was chili, and then added some ground beef because if I was eating stew I wanted meat in it. The flavor starts out spicy and you don't think it's too hot but once you swallow you about choke and your eyes start watering. Too much spice, and this from someone that likes spicy stuff. Won't be doing this again.
Made a few changes by excluding coriander and cloves, used a little less cayenne pepper, used tomato sauce instead of tomato paste, added chopped swiss chard at the end for a little green, and sprinkled the chili with cashews before serving. This made a great (and filling) meal with brown rice, chopped tomatoes and avocado, shredded cheese and sour cream for toppings. Good the first day, better the second!!!
Amazing!... if you dice the vegetables quite small and open your mind to the fact that you can have 'vegetarian chili', there is no need to give this recipe negative reviews. And if you can't handle the heat, reduce the amount of cayenne!
This was really very good and different.
I would definitely make this again. Goes well with whole wheat rolls.
The flavour of the spices is awesome. I did not have apple sauce, so I put apple jelly and also added a can of diced tomatoes instead of tomato paste. Very good mix. Will do again.
