    Was very yummy. I doubled it for my family of 5. I didn’t have fennel.

    How can it be ready in 2 minutes if you simmer for 10?

    Just made a variation of this tonight. No Fennel, and used a sweet potato instead of a red potato. Didn’t use Chili powder, but cumin and cayenne in it’s place. Turned out fantastic!
