    Made this the other day and it was very flavorful. I didn’t have pinto beans or hominy so I used Red Kidney Beans and Garbanzo Beans. Worked out great. I highly recommend this recipe.

    I love this chili, I double it and every bit gets eaten. Will be making for our seeking cabin trip.

    My family loved this Chili. I double the seasoning minus the pepper and red flakes. My family doesnt like really spicy food. I felt it turned out to be to thin so I thickened it up some.
    I loved having the chicken chunks. It was different but tasty. I’ll make this again.

    My family loved it. I doubled the recipe (except for the onions) and subbed the jalapenos for 1 green bell pepper because my mom doesn’t like spicy food. It comfortably fed 5 once it was doubled, so if you’re making this for a bunch of boys, definitely double it. I will be making this again for sure.

    Very good, had plenty of kick. We used 4 tbs of flour to make it thicker, it seemed too watery as directed. Definately making this again

    Turned out great! I actually doubled the recipe, but next time i’ll use 1/2 hominy 1/2 corn, and Some green onions. I added cheddar cheese on the servings. This was wonderful.

    I made this last night. I had it on the wrong setting and released all the liquid. Uggggh! So, this afternoon I added the broth and all the spices again and re-cooked correctly. It was a little to liquidy so I added coconut flour mixed w/some of the broth. YUM! It turned out perfect and delicious today. Will make again!!

    Really good! Thickened a little with sprinkling a little Wondra rather than the flour mixture and worked fine. Also added mushrooms (baby bella) at the beginning while cooking the onions, garlic etc. and they worked really well.
