      What a nice take on chili! My family just ate it up and loved how garlicy and good it is. Made exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. I did serve with additional cheese for the chili itself.

      My goodness this is good!! I used 1 beef bouillion cube and 2/3 c water instead of stock - that took care of the seasoning so I didn't need to add any salt or pepper. I did add the (rinsed and drained) beans along with the bell pepper and tomatoes because I misread the recipe, but they didn't seem to mind the extra 25 minutes of cooking. :-) Will take Wildflour's advice and use extra cheese the next time. But now, I'll go and stuff myself silly with some more of this chili pie! Thank you very much for sharing!
