This recipie was delicious but I will be blunt.  I feel like either this person is a genius chef or the above instructions left some to the imagination.

RE3: I added the broth and the spices seperately but all the spices together.

RE5: I drained both the beans and tomatoes.

RE6: I turned back up to medium and got back almost bubbling (simmering) before I cooked for 30 min.  I let sit a bit while the cornbread finished.

I admit I am mild palated but I was surprised at the amount of heat that 1tbs chili powder made to this huge pot.  Next time I'd probably do 1/2 a tbs or a tsp.

Oh and I left out the onion because I dislike onion.  I didn't sub anything because most of my onion subs were included in this recipie already.  It was fine.  Next time might do more celery=)

But thanks, good recipie!
