Recipe by misslilymaam

I was in the mood for Chili but I couldn't find a good recipe that I liked. So I took some ideas and created this. =) OF course you can use half a jalepeno, or a chili, or use no pepper for a mild chili- but the jalepeno gives it a nice kick! Add more or less seasonings depending on taste 9 I can't really remember the exact measurements)

This was great! Thanks for sharing. I added a can of Goya red kidney beans. I don't know what plum tomatoes are so I used a can of no sodium added stewed tomatoes. Cinnamon was a surprising ingeridient for me but it turned out well!
