This recipe TOTALLY ROCKS! I added extra broth during cooking... we like "sauce"! The house smells divine! I didn't have the mushrooms, or chile sauce and chiles, since we have young children I probably wouldn't add them anyway, but I did add 1 teaspoon of cayenne. I will definitely be making this often! I think it might also be good with a couple tablespoons of cashew butter stirred in at the end.
