I've been making this chili for a while now. Here's what I do: I don't saute the veggies before hand anymore, the oil is just added calories..throw them in raw. This is way too much for my slow cooker. I halve most spices, garlic powder for ease, 2 cans black beans, 1 can kidney beans, 2 cans diced tomatoes (one being spiced). I don't use tofu or any meat substitute, as the 3 cans of beans really is enough substance. So after those changes, I'm not sure that it's "fair" to rate it since I changed a lot of things - but I'm still going to. It's great as written, but as with all recipes - you'll eventually find what works best for you. I also sometimes add a little cinnamon or a small square of chocolate to change things up a bit and make it a slightly sweet chili.
