Sounds sooo good.

I make chili all the time. In fact, I have plans to make it tomorrow. Mine is very similar to yours. I make it vegetarian though and use black beans. I happen to have a bunch of tomatoes that are overripe, so I'm going to broil them up and throw them in. Adds a nice touch. I also like to put some extra heat in there with a bit of cayenne pepper. It's a great make ahead dish that lasts a few days. I serve it either with Flour Tortillas or homemade pita chips.

bee optimistic, I just cook mine on top of the stove.

I love chili! We eat it vegetarian around here, too, and have it at least once a week. We also like the white bean chili.

That sounds great, and I can just smell it! I also make a vegetarian version with soy meat, black beans, and even protein powder. It is awesome. Hope yours if yummy!

Our recipes are very similar. I add ancho chili powder, vietnamese cinnamon & a small pinch of cocoa powder. No chickpeas, though.

What all beans are in the 6 bean blend?

I do it both ways. I always cook my ground chicken BEFORE putting it and the rest of the ingredients in though.

Last night I cooked it on the stove though. I do find that on the stove gives your spices a bit of a kick.

I put the cans in the recycling... but I *think* there was chickpeas, black eyed peas, lima beans, red kidney beans, white kidney beans and...I don't know the last one ;)
