Big on flavor, super easy to pull together, and a short list of ingredients. No alterations needed. What more could you ask for? Read More

Like another reviewer I sauteed some chopped onion in a little olive oil to start then added the diced sausage. I used a can (2 cups) of chicken broth instead of 1 cup and cooked it down a bit longer (like 30 minutes) which gave the flavors time to "meld" and thickened it up some. Spouse thought it was a tad salty which could have been my fault from using twice as much broth and cooking it down. Next time I'll use low sodium broth and maybe No Salt Added beans. Sprinkled some grated cheddar on top. Good recipe a bit unusual but quick and easy. Will make again with low sodium ingredients. Read More

Smoked Sausage White Bean Chili Haiku: "Onion, garlic too. This really was amazing! I simmered all day." Browned 1/2 onion chopped and 1 minced garlic clove w/ the sausage, and then served ours w/ an easy biscuit recipe, shredded cheese, and chopped cilantro: we fell in love w/ this "chili." But what put it over the top was I simmered the leftovers the next day w/ a huge handful of kale, and added a splash of Chipotle Tabasco -- /drool. I'm more tempted to call it "Soup" than chili, but whatever it was in my bowl made me, my chompers, my belly, and my family crazy happy. Read More

It is amazing how so few ingredients result in such a flavorful and delicious dish. Needs no tweaking at all. I made it exactly as written my entire family loved it - their bowls were practically licked clean. Served with cornbread as stated by another reviewer. This will be a regular in our home but from now on I will always make double and hope for some leftovers! Read More

This was fantastic! My family loved it as written but when I made a few alterations they liked it even better. They wanted a few more beans so I added one more can of beans and half to a full can of chopped chilies. I also added a little more liquid so it was a tad more soupy. May need a little more spices to taste if you're making liquid and bean adjustments. Definitely top with an extra sharp cheddar and some parsley (we also tried cilantro but it was better with parsley believe it or not!). Read More
