My DH made chili recently, following the same recipe he has used before and came out soupy. I loved it that way. With several reheatings, it got to a more normal consistency and went in the freezer.
I often make stew soupy on purpose. We have it as chunky soup and then reheat it and reduce the liquid for a more normal stew.
May you live as long as you wish and love as long as you live.
