Didn't have sherry so used Worcestershire sauce instead. Delicious!


Like everyone else I used a little bit of Worcestershire sauce instead of sherry. My roomates love when I make this. the Itailian stewed tomatoes make this good. If my pot was big enought I would put 4 cans of them in this.

Grumpy's Honeybunch

We liked this but I did make changes to it by adding chili and cumin powder. I also used the Jalapeno Cheese Sausage Links by Johnsonville (which are fabulous by the way!). I also reduced the amount of tomatoes by 1 can and it still seemed like a lot of diced tomatoes. Iused kidney beans instead of the white bean but only because I didn't have any. I think the Sherry is what made this stand out flavor wise and will make sure to try this again with more modifications - only still will use the Sherry! Grumpy said it was better the second day as he had the leftovers for lunch.
