    I love this chilli recipe. It reminds me of my country’s beans stew. It’s very tasty. I had to cut back on the chilli as it was too spicy otherwise, was superb. I’ll add it to my staple food.

    Super easy, as advertised. I just added double cumin, and a tablespoon of curry powder, and a finely chopped jalapeño (deseeded). I love a little extra seasoning.

    Quick and easy everyday meal. Even making it in a large quantity will take no time. The taste is good but also nothing special. I added a red bell pepper (which I can recommend) and replaced half of the corn with peas. I also added quite a bit more cumin than in the recipe. Will make it again, especially when I dont have to much time and don't want to think too much.

    Great! Used aduki beans, corn and lentils and added carrot and celery... Used it as the motor and not the vehicle😊. Added vegan sour cream and some guacamole to make it a feast instead of just a meal.

    So good!!! I used Bush's Southwest Seasoned Pinto Beans, instead of kidney beans and Beyond Beef Crumbles instead of lentils. I absolutely love this recipe! I also add jalapenos and Frank's Extra Hot sauce!

    I’ve made this several times now, and it’s one of my favorites. Been making it every other week. Also, it’s tasty even without the lentils.

    I added an extra tablespoon of cumin than what is in the recipe and it turned out great! Now that I have invested in buying all the spices, it will be easy for me to make this again.

    Flavor was good but didn’t like the texture of the lentils. Next time I’ll do just kidney beans and black beans.

    I’m not vegan or even vegetarian, just looking for healthier alternatives, and this didn’t feel lacking in anything. Came out great!

    Turned out great. I had to add some vegetable stock to thin it out a bit.
