Vegetarian Chili

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"Hominy and garbanzo beans are interesting additions to the zippy chili that Karen Hunt stirs up using canned goods from her cupboard. 'I often serve it with corn bread or flour tortillas for a speedy meal,' says the Bellvue, Colorado cook. At 72 cents a serving, it's economical, too."

Not sure why, but this recipe turned out terrible when I made it. I made the soup for an event at school and we were unable to serve it because of the taste. Again, not sure what went wrong, but...
