This recipe makes enough soup to feed a crowd, perfect for cold rainy evenings. It also freezes well so you can have dinner on stand by.
Made it more kid friendly. I only used one green and one red capsicum, black beans instead of kidney, and crushed tomatoes instead of diced due to FC (finicky child), and she still didn't like this soup. My husband and I LOVED it; the FC knows nothing! I also substituted chicken stock for the water and added extra corn, and will make it the same way next time. Minced coriander is a tasty garnish! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. When I made this chilli I used 3 cans of beans,, 2cups of frozen corn & 2cups of chicken stock instead of the water. The other thing different I did was let it cook in a crock pot on high for about 6 hrs. There was not even a drop left that football Sunday! Success! - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. Quick to prepare and good tasting. My husband said it had the perfect blend of seasonings. I added seasoning salt, fresh ground black pepper and used frozen diced onions, green peppers and a mixed bag of veggies. Left out the kidney beans. Topped with sour cream, grated cheddar cheese and tortilla chips. - 29 Sep 2008
