I didn't really expect much from this recipe but my husband really wanted to make it so I indulged him and I'm so glad I did! This turned out to be extremely quick, filling and flavorful. I'm not into fake meat so I just added a second can of hominy and it worked perfectly. Plus hominy is such a great texture and I don't use it nearly enough when I cook. It was a bit thicker than I'd thought it would be so I had to add some extra water to thin it out the next day but overall, this recipe was a huge success!
Hearty & very easy, great for an unseasonably cold & rainy day. Made to recipe non-vegetarian only because we were using what we had on hand (pork chorizo sub for meatless & chicken broth sub for water). Also blackened the poblano over flame, peeled then seeded & chopped. Served with wedges of cheese quesadilla. Pretty good.
Couldn't find the vegitarian sausage, but did find chorizo sausage - and chopped one up nice and small. Kept the veins and seeds of the poblano Used 2 tbls of hot sauce, and then sprinkles some habanero sauce on the top. Didn't have fresh cilantro or oregano - i used dried. The lime was a nice touch at the dining time as well. Overall, a tasty recipe, and not too long to make
You really won't miss the meat. Super hearty meal that works well in slow cooker. I subbed in beer for the water, which I think enhances the spice. This has a nice burn to it but if you are cooking for someone with an adversion to spicy food, I'd pick another recipe.
I made this chili just as called for in the recipe, and served it with cornbread. I'm vegetarian, but my husband loves meat (especially chorizo) and is not usually keen on vegetarian chili - but he LOVED this recipe! I'll definitely make it again - good for every day.
On the first attempt this chili dish was great! It's very hearty and satisfying and has a nice spicy kick and not difficult to make. This is a personal preference but next time I won't use fresh oregano, the other spices and garnishes add sufficient flavor. I also think it will add a bit of ground beef to the next batch just to see how it will turn out. Overall though this is a great, light, filling and tasty recipe.
