My husband and I LOVED this! I took the suggestions of others and used ground chicken, only used 3c. of broth, and mashed a second can of bean and added it to the soup to make it thicker. We'll definitely make this again!

A little too much liquid. Seemed more like soup that chili, but it was still delicious!

Very good. I misread this recipe. I was looking for a recipe to use a couple of pork chops, not ground pork, but didn't figure out my mistake until halfway through making it. Oops. But it still turned out quite tasty. I just chopped up the pork and browned in the pan with the onions and garlic, then continued on as written. I subbed a spicy salsa verde for the green chiles, which worked really well. Because of the comments about the chili being watery, I cut down the broth to less than 2 cups, and it really reduced. With the addition of the cheese, this was a very very thick chili. Very good, as well. Bf ate his all up within a minute or so. I wasn't as hungry, but now I have lunch for tomorrow and I'm pleased. Thanks for the recipe!
