I added a can of Rotel tomatoes! Awesome! I have made this for years and it's always a big hit at Halloween block party!

For vegetarians, instead of adding the chicken, rehydrate TVP (total vegetable protein) with McKay's Chicken Seasoning (both available at health food stores) or use water packed Tofu marinated for at least one hour in McKay's Chicken Seasoning broth to absorb the flavor. Also, I add shredded carrots and minced fresh cilantro 5-10 minutes before serving so that they are good and warm but not thoroughly cooked.

This recipe is great. I thought it might need a little more spice. At the end I added a bit of salt, black pepper, garlic powder and a little granulated sugar. But if you serve each bowl of soup with some great salsa and some sour cream or plain yogurt, it's really good! I probably did not need to add in the spices that I did. I also drained and rinsed the canned beans before adding them to the soup.

I can't remember how many times I've made this wonderful, and very easy chili. Never once have I felt the need to alter the recipe. It is so quick to make! Once people get over their initial fear, they love it. Print copies of the recipe when you make this, you'll need them for several people.
