Made this for NY day, and used 1 can black beans (drained!) and about a cup or so of black-eyed peas, to meet my southern tradition for New Year's. I think it's delicious, and very filling, but I found it to be too spicy, and I even cut down on some of the spices. I only used 1 tsp of cumin, not a tablespoon, and didn't have chili powder on hand so used a tsp. of paprika and tsp. of cayenne pepper instead. I only used a tsp. of salt, and one cup of water, because I like really chunky chili, not "soup" chili, plus the extra sodium is not needed! The consistency was perfect. Added a Tsp. of cocoa powder. Next time, I will just leave out the hot sauce to see if that fixes the slightly "too spicy" taste. I know some people really love spicy though! I also used red pepper, instead of green, as I don't care for green peppers. I garnished with some fresh sliced avocado and non-fat plain yogurt. Overall this is a great recipe and I will enjoy tweaking it.
