This is recipe is great. I made a few of the following modifications and everyone went back for seconds (some even thirds!).
I followed the recipe pretty much as is with a few additions and some substitutions.
1). 1 can of black beans, 2). 1 TBSP of Cumin, 3). 1/2 - 1 Tsp of fresh ground Chipotle Chili Seasoning (comes in a bottle with a grinder), 4). 1 can of Mild Diced Green Chilies, 5). 2 crushed cloves of fresh Garlic (through a press), 6). 1/2 can of Tomato Paste to thicken in the last hr.
1). Replaced regular Diced Tomoatoes with Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes for flavor (brand - Muir Glen Organic), 2).
Replaced regular salt with Garlic Salt, 3). "No Salt added" Tomato Sauce by Muir Glen Organic. (I watch the salt in recipes quite a bit as I have family members with high blood pressure).
1). Green bell pepper.
Topped each bowl off with some grated Smoked Cheddar Cheese, Lt. Sour Cream, Diced Black Olives.
Everyone commented that the Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes and the Smoked Cheddar on top gave it such great flavor. It had a slight kick. Just enough to be an authentic chili dish. My hubby forgot shredded cheddar at the store and all I had in the frig was a block of Tillamook Smoked Cheddar.
