This is a great recipe. I did make some changes based on the ingredients I had on hand. (e.g. I used dried beans. After cooking them, I used some of the bean juice in the chili.)

We had enought left over to freeze. It was just as good after freezing and reheating. Thanks!

I thought this was pretty good, but I definitely didn't think there were enough beans; I ended up adding an extra can of black beans as well as some cilantro I had laying around to the mix. With those modifications, it was perfectly to my taste. Also, it froze well. Yum!

Made this for supper this week. Great recipe. Easy and quick to make, delicious in our tummy's! I didn't use the peppers as I didn't have any and just added another can of beans instead. Even my 2 year old ate it!

This was really, really delicious. I added a chopped jalapeno and only ended up using 8oz. tomato sauce and maybe 2 oz. of tomato paste. Even then, it was very "saucy" so I added an additional 1 can of black beans. I diced 2 portobella caps into large chunks and that gave it a "meaty" texture. Very, very good and we'll definitely make again!

I'm not sure this really tasted like chili to me, but regardless, the flavor and texture was great! Cornbread would be a perfect complement to this dish. Also, given its consistency, I also think it would be great served over pasta with a side salad and crusty bread. My husband loaded it up with cheese to top. Thanks for this one, SweetySJD!

The taste was good, but I think it was a little too tomato-ie. Next time I may try adding half the tomato paste and half the tomato sauce.

Hearty and full of flavour. The carnivore in me couldn't resist serving this with some rice and beef. The left overs made a lovely thick soup that I ate on it's own.

Delicious chili, didn't even miss the meat! The only change I made was to add 1 chopped jalapeno I had in the fridge. Thank you very much, I love it!

Oh my, this was a fine, fine chili with lots of flavor and just a hint of heat. I used low sodium tomato sauce and tomato paste and (I know it's heresy) canned mushrooms. The peppers I had around are orange and green so that's what I made it with. Love the black beans, love that it's so easy!

Delicious vegetarian chili!! Had just enough spices and was not too thick - just right!! My bf made me fresh blackbeans that we used here and I made the rest as is (used 2 red peppers instead of green and yellow). Thanks Sweety - can't wait to have the leftovers!! :)
