One Comment I Liked:
“We absolutely loved this meal. If you’re planning to serve this to a family of four, then I say double up the ingredients. But this was just fine for my family of 3. I used a 2qt casserole dish, used a can of green chilies instead of jalapeños, didn’t use the whole can of black beans, and seasoned my meat with Lawry’s & black pepper along with the cumin and garlic. I used Marie Calendar Honey Butter cornbread mix (but didn’t use all of the batter) which provided a nice contrast to the spicy meat mixture, and I added chives to my cornbread mix. Making this again real soon…”
Note:  Some said it came out a little soupy but got thicker as it stood.  It’s suppose to be chili!
