We make this about once a week. Thanks yes so easy and delicious! We leave out the chipotle and chili flakes because my kids are sensitive to anything remotely spicy. We love serving it with baked sweet potatoes!
This chili is amazing and will definitely be put into our regular meal rotation. I used date powder instead of dates (using the nutritional info for 2oz dates, 38g was the equivalent in powder), and it worked great.
How do you think it will taste without the vinegar. I am not supposed to have vinegar.
Can I use date paste in this recipe? If so how much?
So delicious! I added kidney beans and omitted the date blend because I don’t like sweet chili. Also added one green and one red bell pepper for extra flavor. Like most FOK recipes, this was a winner!
The instructions are to puree the date in a blender. Place remaining ingredients in cooking vessel and cook. It never says what to do with the dates. Do they go into the pot? Added at the beginning? Stirred in at some point? Added at the end? I am a bit confused.
The video shows that the date mixture goes in the pot before you turn in on.
Wow, this is so yummy and so filling! It makes a huge batch too. I’ll be making this again for sure.
