Peanut butter, mango chutney and lime juice - in chili?! Yes, and it's delicious! This incredibly quick and easy - yet quite nontraditional - chili is a perfect antidote to fancy holiday meals and works equally well using chopped leftover turkey. 'Eat it again, Sam'!

We love to try new chili recipes and this was great! I didn't use raisins (don't like) and used an apple/pineapple chutney I had leftover from another recipe. Put it in the slow cooker for about 5 hours. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Ugh this recipe was terrible! It was disappointing because I like all the ingredients (except for ham which I replaced with chicken) and I thought it would be tasty. It was just so overwhelmingly sweet! The taste of the chili beans did not fit at all with the other flavors. If I ever made this recipe again (which I probably won't) I would use no chili beans more chickpeas and little or no brown sugar. Who knows maybe it's better with ham? Read More

I tried this recipe on a whim - it was too weird to pass up! I really thought I had a "let's order pizza" recipe when it was cooking but the taste is AWESOME! My husband says I have to make it again (I might try the chicken next time) and even my 18-month old liked it (although it's a bit spicy). Reheating leftovers at work resulted in a bunch of people asking for the recipe! Thanks! Read More

As a birthday dinner Casablanca Chili was attractively bizarre. I do admit that at first sight this cuisine is aesthetically repulsive. However give it a chance and these random ingredients will make your mouth water. For those sophomoric chefs Mango Chutney could be quite new. It makes the meal. Embellish. Move out of your comfort zone here folks good things will happen. Optomism and variety are healthy additions to your lifestyle. Read More

Yum! This got two thumbs up last night!I did make a couple changes - first off my hubby is allergic to peanuts (peanut butter peanut oil etc)so I substituted cashew butter. Also sauteed 1/2 small onion diced before adding the other ingredients (next time might add a clove of garlic minced too);finally I used 2 cans of garbanzos because I didn't have the chile beans. This is a keeper - as others have said don't be scared off by the ingredient list - it all comes together beautifully! Read More

Amazingly awesome chili!!! People I shared this recipe with were skeptical until they tried it. I was even worried about making chili with peanut butter but I followed the recipe to the letter & it was wonderful. Next time I might spice it up with a hotter mango chutney (or just use more). Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

What a delicious easy recipe! I didn't have mango chutney so I added mango preserves diced jalepenos a little habanero sauce and about 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Thank you for this "keeper". By the way my kids (2 and 3) love it as well. Read More

An unusual "chili" with a marvelous and different taste. We served it with a rice/onion pilaf that was a perfect accompaniment. Read More
