I adopted this chili recipe recently as no one cared to take it in, and I will make a few changes here and there and "presto" it will be a new child! :)

Hey Oz, I know this is your adopted recipe, so I didn't want to leave any stars, only feedback, since you stated that you are in the process of "tweaking" this adoptee to be your own. (Hope that is okay.) I made this today. Followed the recipe exactly (except for using stewing beef chunks for the brisket). I think the ratio of liquid to the other ingredients is a bit high, as this chili was thin and not a bit "hearty" as I envision a chili to be... The taste? Spicy-hot, and quite excellent.... Thus, my quandry! So... I cooked and tasted, tasted and cooked... then decided to add a can of black beans. Better! Still soupy, though, so I added a can of (drained) kernel corn. Even better. In fact, very good indeed. This is where I would have given this recipe an entire and honest 5 stars... But I changed it so much from the original recipe... (**sorry!**) So I'll just leave my two-cents' worth here, with a HUGE thank you for grabbing this recipe for your files. I am definitely going to make this great tasting chili again! (my way... )Thanks, Oz, and way to go winning the football pool! ;)
