        I cut the oil & butter in half; also replaced the cup of heavy cream with 1/2 cup of Land o Lakes fat free half & half; added many more veggies-finely chopped carrots, orange or red bell pepper, cabbage, & celery. I used Daisy light sour cream & organic brown rice. OMG!!! Amazing!!! Flavor is exactly the same as Cheesecake Factory chili, but this has less fat, fewer calories, lower glycemic index without the white rice, & more fiber & nutrition from the added veggies. I give this 5 stars/hearts

          There is something seriously wrong with the ingredient list. I would say 4 cups of chicken broth would do the trick. Adding 8 has turned this into soup!
