Multi-Bean Chili

The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Even confirmed carnivores will love this meatless chili because it's rib-sticking thick. If you like, add a dollop of low-fat sour cream or nonfat plain yogurt to each serving. Or try it with minced scallions and a little shredded Cheddar. In any case, have bottled hot red pepper sauce on hand to pass alongside.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Found this ok. Followed the recipe but it was really watery and did not have a great flavour. Ended up adding in a package of soy meat, mushrooms, green pepper, carrots and simmering for about 2.5 hours. Much better after that. "

This recipe was awesome! Very hot... It might because I added a 1/2 cup of hot salsa, didn't add fresh tomatos, and added an extra can of white beans. Also, simmered for about a 1/2 hour.

Very easy. Very good.

I loved this chili. I made this exactly as the recipe stated and did not have any problems with the chili being watery. I did not eat this meal right away. I portioned it out for lunches and found it to be awesome reheated. Very flavorful and filling meal.

second time to make this... i used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes instead of the 3 fresh... MUCH better! again, i simmered for 2 hrs (without covering) to cook down. i would definitely add another can of beans to it though and maybe another tbsp of chili powder.. other than that, YUM! my husband even added some left over ground beef with taco seasoning from the night before to his - fabulous!

This chili had a nice smokiness, but it seemed like it was missing something. It just wasn't flavorful enough. I doctored it up with about 1/2 cup picante sauce and topped my serving with pico de gallo and avocado, which was tasty. (We only used about 2 cups of water.) I would make this again because it's very easy, but I'll look for ways to improve upon the original recipe.

good but it was too sweet for chili (maybe from the crushed tomatoes? ...i think next time i might use diced instead). like others, i noticed it was a little watery so i cooked it for about 2 hrs instead of 15 min. even though ive had better, i will definitely make again - quick, easy and hearty enough for the biggest meat lovers!
