    Delicious recipe! I used chicken broth instead of water/bouillon and subbed a jar of green chili sauce for the tomatillos. Made it much faster and it was so flavorful. Going into my regular rotation!

    This recipe was delicious! I just had a couple of notes. The liquid reduced a little too much, so I would agree about adding more stock next time. Also, even though I live in Houston, I could not find fresh tomatillo peppers, so I used canned. I thought the taste was outstanding.

    This was great! Although I did make a few substitutions - I used only two cans of black beans instead of three cans of different beans, and I felt that that was plenty of beans. I also substituted chicken stock for the water and bouillon cube, and added more salt at the end to taste. Finally, I substituted canned pickled chilies for the peppers because that's what I had on hand. I did also add some extra stock at the end as well to get the chili to a consistency that I preferred. Overall, a great dish, though! My whole family really enjoyed it and it tasted even better the next day.

    I've never cooked anything from Southern Living magazine but this was fabulous! Good chili kick and so healthy. I halved the recipe - still a big potful. Also, to maximize on my ingredients, I poached a chicken breast (in 2-1/2 cups water), then used the poaching liquid to boil the tomatillos. I only used one pepper, and one can of (black) beans. Word of advice: Using a towel, hold firmly down on the blender cover to avoid having hot tomatillos splattered all over the kitchen.
