This is my first time having Millet! In this chili, the millet turns has an appearance of ground beef. I’ve never really been a beef eater, but for those who are transitioning, this would be a good recipe to start with. This chili also tastes really good! I love kidney beans!! Yum. The seasoning is good, very chili-esque. This is great for a cold day, or if you are just trying to up your bean intake. We had this with tortilla chips and then another time with crackers.
For us, it didn’t make 8 servings. That might have meant 8 cups, like if you just eat 1 cup of chili at a time. For us, we ate almost double that amount, so this recipe made 5 servings. Geez, we sound like pigs!! :P I subbed the can of crushed tomatoes for 4 real tomatoes. Now I’m thinking that adding in a bit of Pomi Strained Tomatoes to the mix would have knocked this out of the park. But Sutton loved it just as it was, giving it 5 stars! I ended up having to use 4 cups of vegetable stock, instead of the 2 it called for because it was sticking and burning to the bottom of the pan. Maybe this has to do with my tomato switch? Ah well. It also took me 10 minutes longer to prep than this recipe said. However, I chopped everything without using a food processor, and I started thinking, oh, wow, that must really save time!
