      Pratonix the picture itself is not of my recipe. I should take my own for you to see what it looks like. Just as yummy though. It's funny you mention you are from Asia because I first had Chili Rice when i was over in Japan. lived there for three years with military husband and a place on base served it over rice. I modified the recipe with the beans i like and seasoning. I tell my Americans friends how much I love Chili over rice and they look at me like it's a weird thing. It must be an asian thing but I Love it!! thanks for your comment:)

      The picture of the bowl of chili was so good it made my mouth water. The yellow strips on top, I presume, are Mexican capsicum.

      Sorry for asking, because I'm from Asia and this looks more like a Chinese dish to me. Which we eat with flatbread or rice.

      Wrath I enjoy trying different kinds of beans with chili. You can mix and match for preferred taste and texture.

      I never tried chili with three different kinds of beans. Sounds like it might be the thing to do. Thanks.
