I like a variety of beans, so I used a can of cannellini, a can of garbanzo, a can of pinto, and a can of great northern beans (4 cans total... I reduced the number of cans of beans based on other reviews). I reduced the red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp, because 1 and 1/2 seemed like a LOT. My first impression on trying this chili was... it's kinda bland. I know, I know, I reduced the red pepper flakes but I feel that adds more heat than flavor. I added some hot sauce, and it tasted amazing. I think if I make this recipe again, I will add a couple bay leaves, do a full tsp of red pepper flakes, and at least a couple tablespoons of hot sauce.
