I was unsure of how this was going to turn out (it started more soupy than I was expecting) but over the course of a couple-3 hours it thickened to a great consistency and even better taste! Read More

This chili has a lot of flavor! However the amount of chipotle powder was way too overpowering even after I added more of all the other spices. Also the chili was a little more liquid-y than I'm used to and I even drained/rinsed the cans of beans. I would put the spinach in at the end next time because I did not like the texture of soggy spinach. But overall good with some sour cream to tamper the chipotle! Read More

Made this recipe today. Came out great. I omitted the spinach and added crumbles instead. I also used Arrowroot the last hour of cooking as a thickener. It worked great and there is no taste to arrowroot. It does make a large batch so just a warning you probably not be able to eat all of it at one sitting. You could also use cornstarch or flour for a thickening but I would recommend the cornstarch over the flour. Actually arrowroot is best because it is tasteless. Read More

This was delish! If you let it cook the full 8 hours it thickens up naturally. I didn't need to add any arrowroot or corn starch. The only changes I made were I substituted tastefully simple garlic garlic for the fresh garlic cloves (I was out of fresh), I didn't have coriander, so I skipped that. I omitted the spinach just because I forgot to add it in at the end. Other than that, I followed the recipe and it came out great. It did take me about 35 minutes to put it all together. That would be the only negative I have. Read More
