I won first place in a chili contest with this recipe. It thickens beautifully after 2 hours on a slow simmer. I also make this in a slow cooker, adding only 2 cups of water instead of 3. Even in this hot weather, it makes an excellent topping for a meat free/dairy free addition to baby greens and romaine lettuce for a very healthy taco salad. Add a couple slices of avocado and a squeeze of lime on top--absolutely delicious!
