This was pretty tasty. The hominy is nice, it kind of blends all the flavors together. I added half a tube of soyrizo instead of the "meatballs" which gave it the right amount of kick. I had to leave out the green beans and 1 cup of the chickpeas, I just didn't have enough room in my Crockpot! I took this over my family's over the holidays (good thing too, there was nothing else I could eat :P ) and everyone that tried it really liked it.


Yum Yum Yum!!!  I think I like this better than my old-standby chili recipe.  I halved the recipe since I was just making it for myself.  I omitted the green beans and used mushrooms instead of the meatballs.  Wonderful!  Next time I will have to remember to throw in some ground flax seed.  Thanks for the great recipe!


I made this tonight and it was super good!! :D Also made cornbread to go with it  :P


At Yabbitgirl's suggestion I have started replacing the optional meatballs (which I never liked that much anyway) with sliced white mushrooms.  Really good!


I always add a few mushrooms...goood chilli. 8)


I usually also add about 2 TBSP ground flax seeds to this to add some omega 3's.
