      I made this last week and had it with cornbread. I was seriously looking forward to tasting it the next day. Unfortunately, later that night I was taken to the hospital in the ambulance (unrelated to the chili ;) ), and my husband finished it off before I came home! LOL Today, I am making it again and once again look forward to having it the second day. I cannot imagine that it could possibly be better than it was the first time last week, but...if it is, WOW!!! BTW, I made my own chili beans by soaking then cooking 2 cups of dry black beans. Soak overnight and cook for at least an hour with a mixture of thyme, cayenne pepper, chili powder, and salt. They really added to the wonderful taste.

      This was phenomenal! My husband, a die hard carnivore said this was one of the best meals I've ever made. I added a can of corn and a pinch of cayenne and served it with cilantro and a few slices of avocado (which was a great substitute for sour cream). This could not have been better!
