My husband chose to make this recipe one last week. I was a bit skeptical at first, but it was delicious! He did add a pound of ground sirloin to the chili and I think that made it not too spicy for our boys (3years old). It may be a bit spicy for younger kids with amount of chili pepper in the recipe, if you don''t have the meat. Also, after preparation, I used a chopper to finely chop all the veggies, except for the beans to feed to the boys. When I mixed the chopped veggies, back into their bowls, it lloked like regular chili, so you probably could do this to begin with. They LOVED it (and they are PICKY eaters). My husband and I loved the chunks of beans, peppers and tomatoes. (and I had never tried chili with sour cream - yum! - boys only had cheese ontheirs)It''s going to be a staple around here, I''m sure for a long time.
