I didn't care for the texture of this chili...so many onions...first of all, chopping onions takes some time, so I wouldn't consider this 30 minute chili. Second, 3 onions?!?! I cooked all the veggies the recommended 7 minutes and even after the 15 min simmer, the carrots and onions were not as soft as I'd like them in chili. And I really diced them small. The flavor was okay, but the texture was too vegetable-y. And it was quite thick, I even added broth to help, but it was still too thick for me. My husband wouldn't eat it.
