Other comments:

Very filling, consistency much like chili, not like soup.
If more soupy consistency desired, consider adding more tomato juice or chicken stock. *
* would mean your dietary info would change.

(edit note: sorry I had originally posted the caloric information wrong.. as is above it is now correct)

Me again!

I apologize.. I am just sooo bad at math. Trying to divide up how much of everything in this recipe I gave the wrong caloric breakdown, I think.

After a re-calculation, it appears that I gave you the caloric total for 2 cups of this dish rather than 1 cup.

The TOTAL calories for the 14 cup recipe (the whole pot) is: 2212

so I divided that by 14 and the answer should be: 158 instead of twice that.
Now you can eat twice as much. :dizzy:
