    Fantastic flavor. This from a carnivore who's trying to be better.

    Good! But not the best I’ve had. Will probably make again though.

    This was great ! Swap celery for Jalapeños if you’re looking for a kick!

    Most delicious chilli recipe I have had. I don't usually like chilli, I don't like any of the flavours but this was very very nice.

    It was filling and delicious! We made it less spicey than it called for but the combination of flavors was wonderful. Enjoyed tremendously!

    Fixed it for a church social and it was great. I only used 2 of the chipotle peppers and it had a good bid of heat(I like spicy though). Also had to substitute quinoa for the groats as I live in a small town and it wasn't available. Will definitely fix again.

    Turned out great. Just spicy enough! Used quinoa instead of buckwheat.

    This was a perfect recipe. Quick and easy, all in the one pot, the smell and taste was amazing. Thank you for sharing. Only difference I had was swapping out the celery for bok choy.

    Instead of suggested seasonings I used a package of Chili seasoning & added a jalapeño! Turned out great!!!

    Really nice dish - I'm always running short on time with two small hungry kids so reduced simmering time to 40+15 mins instead of 45+30 mins. Also replaced buckwheat with quinoa. Came out great and kids loved it.

    I didn’t add the wheat so it came out a bit watery!

    It came out really good. I didn't have enough onions so I used 2 packs of lipton onion soup and I was missing the buckwheat. Either way this is a awesome chili, the flavor is just right, not spicy.

    OMG I am in love with this!! Me and my family loves it. I added a dash of worchestire sauce, and some unsweetened cocoa powder, and topped it with avocado and it came out AMAZING! This meal is perfect for vegetarians who dont want to miss the meat. You won't at all and its beautiful as well as beautiful for you! Reccomend to anyone. I served it over rice but you could serve it over roasted quinoa too. This meal deserved every star, thank you for this recipe!
