Chicken Two Bean Chili Haiku: "Crestfallen chili. Tomato sauce overload. Needed several tweaks." I had such high hopes for this chili, especially since upon walking in the door from work, I salivated at its chirping-in-the-crockpot-all-day aroma. Unfortunately, I couldn't get over the overwhelming tomato sauce taste. I followed the recipe exactly as written, w/ the exception of using fresh cilantro (1/4 c. finely-chopped) instead of dried, and reducing the brown sugar to 1/4 c. (Although should I make this again, I would probably drop it to 2 TB instead.) For all of the wonderful flavors that went into it, I just tasted what I could only describe as tomato soup w/ chicken and beans. It's a good recipe that just needs a few changes, such as less tomato sauce, or none at all (possibly a small can tomato paste and more chicken stock?) and definitely less brown sugar, to evolve into a great recipe.
