We unfortunately had to leave out the jalapenos because one of us can't stand heat, but we got a pan of chili we could all truly enjoy. (The menfolk had their bottle of pepper sauce to comfort them.) Bottom line, this is a hearty Southwestern chili that's filling as well as tasty.
wow! This is a great chili. Dgf thinks i make a tad too hot chili but she sure was pleased with this one and me too. It had just the right amount of heat... I didnt make much changes to the recipe i used cayenne pepper as recommended.. added 1 teaspoon of garlic powder at the last 15 min of cooking!! I added aprox 3 dl (1 1/2 cup?) of water and let the whole thing simmer for full 2 hours.. Fantastic stuff thank you for posting this recipe.
